Behind the scenes of Kresnik: Cinematography


It would’ve been possible to shoot
the movie during the day, given that many of the scenes
were shot in the woods. But to do that, we would need soft light
– we would need cloudy weather. So me and David decided
to shoot it all real, at night. We limited this light park
as much as possible, due to finances. We had an elevator
and on top of it a balloon. This balloon of ours
is really awesome invention. It’s like a big moon.
It covers not only 10 meters, but a 100 meters
left and right. The film was shot
without considering special effects. If it’s considered before filming,
some things can be prepared, and it’s possibly easier. Some problems
had to be solved. We added stars, night ambient, the moon,
and some extra effects on the wolves. “Want to come with me?” The film is a little bit … For a children’s film it could have been
a little more saturated, colorized. The colors could have been more vibrant,
like they usually are in children’s movies. But this movie
has this filmic, serious look. As the shooting was going on at night
and you sleep during the day, was the first hard thing
the work at night. Before you get used to this system,
you lose quite a bit of energy. For example
the first two days. “Wake up!” I know that one night
when we were shooting, I fell asleep in the middle
of the night on some mattresses, I don’t even
know what those were? Those mattresses
were moved down … I don’t know. I was actually never sleepy, because
there was always something going on. We slept in the morning, and in the afternoon
we prepared for the night shoot.
