VOL 95 (2014) FROM ASC CLOSE UP – BEST PROFESSIONAL ADVICE RECAP

 

ASC Logo smallSIDE

From ASC CLOSE UP american-cinematographer-logo Vol 95(2014)

What’s The Best Professional Advice you’ve received?

MICHAEL BONVILLAIN, ASC

‘Never stand when you can sit, and never sit when you can  lie down.’

JAVIER AGUIRRESAROBE, ASC, AFC

I don’t remember ever receiving advice about my work from anyone except my gaffers, who advised me not to be so impatient.However, I once received  this general advice : ‘ A movie is like the Tour de France: It’s not necessary to win all the stages. It’s more important to resolve the worst situations,maintain the consistency, and then arrive in Paris as the winner’.

REXFORD METZ, ASC

‘Never say no!’

GEORGE MOORADIAN, ASC

At the bottom of a silver mine in Park City, Utah, 1 1/2 Miles underground Garland Wilde intoned, ‘Don’t be afraid of the Dark.’ You can take that advice anywhere.

JAMES A. CHRESSANTHIS, ASC

Vilmos Zsigmond told me, ‘Jim, it takes 10 years to become a cinematographer, so be patient and remember, nice guys finish first. And promise me that when you are a successful, you will help the next person.’

ALEX FUNKE, ASC

‘Never ask the crew to undo something  they already done!’ And, ‘Always finish the day leaving a shot ready to start right away the next morning.’

KRAMER MORGENTHAU, ASC

‘In this business, if you aren’t early, you are late.’

JONATHAN FREEMAN, ASC

‘Trust your instinct. Your first choice is usually the best.’

KEN KELSCH, ASC

John Cassavetes told us at NYU not to stop shooting.Just figure it out a way to do it.

JULIO G. MACAT, ASC

When you shoot, take chances, don’t play it safe; push the envelope into that scary and dangerous place; do not settle  for mediocre work. There is always  for improvment . Be original; do ordinary things in a extraordinary way. Don’t forget you are telling a story- so what does each shot say? Shoot images that you would enjoy watching.

DEEP IN TO HEAT 2017

immagine-87As far as this soundtrack, in my view Michael Mann’s masterpiece, is concerned it is really possible to talk about “Miscellaneous Artists”. To be true, it all began to find out the beautiful piece The Last Lagoon by William Orbit (famous English, electronic music producer and arranger) and after several years of searching I could understand, quite totally, the very core of this film music.
Michael Mann maximises the emphasising of the visual impact together with the sound one by drawing profusely from famous and brillant authors such as the Kronos Quartet and Elliot Goldenthal (Alien 3).
Other tracks are omitted in the score official version, maybe both for room and royalties reasons, but anyway used in the film.
It is specifically these latter that I am going to consider mainly by listing aside the context they have been matched with:

– Get Up To This – New world beat
(Vincent at the disco’s office discover who “Slick” is;probably the Disco’s Background music fading…)
– Gringatcho Demento – William Orbit
(background music when Waingro is looking for a job in a bar) – track from Strange Cargo III album
– The thrill is gone – BB King
(During the ball of Vincent and Justine…)
– Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra Boulez conducted by Ligeti
(the Platinum robbery) track from the namesake album
– The Monkey King William Orbit
(Chris, Neil and Michael mislead the guard by gesticulating) track from Strange cargo III
– Arabic Agony James
(L.A.P.D. Smile!…a picture from above)
– In November – David Darling
(Neil finds out from some documents who Vincent Hanna is) track from Cello album
– Late Evening in Jersey – Brian Eno
(Chris and Michael in the underground car park hack into the computer altering the bank alarm /Charlene and Dominique ask for the police safeguard)
– Black Cloud – Steve Roach /Elmar Schulte performed by Solitaire
(Waingro meets Roger Van Zant/ Donald stops what he was doing…) track from Ritual Ground album
– Celon – Lisa Gerrard / Pieter Bourke
(News of the bank robbery on TV)
– Will Gaines – Eric Clapton
(Neil devises with Nate a new escape plan / Vincent and Casalas visit Hugh Benny)
– The Last Lagoon – William Orbit
(Vincent says about Neil: “… He’s is still here…”I feel it” … Neil runs after Eady on the hill at dawn)
– The Mighty Limpopo – William Orbit
(Chris understands Charlene’s wave and leaves) – track from Strange Cargo I album

The piece The Last Lagoon by William Orbit (taken from Strange Cargo II album) replace Run Up Hill scene written by Elliot Goldenthal and included in the official soundtrack.
The same is true for the track Refinery Surveillance (scene of the surveillance in the refinery) afterwards replaced by three pieces: The Monkey King by William Orbit, In November by David Darling mixed with Arabic Agony by the James, this latter is taken from Wah Wah album.
Celon by Lisa Gerrard is used in the film but omitted in the soundtrack edition; all the three pieces by Lisa Gerrard are included in The Mirror Pool album.
New Dawn Fades, a shorter, not sung version, is used during the motorway chase between Vincent and Neil and it is a remake by Moby of the namesake piece by the Joy Division; the song integral version is available in the album I Like to Score by Moby.
Armenia by the Einstűrzende Neubauten (taken from Drawings of Patient O.T. album) used for a few seconds during the first “sceptical” meeting of Neil and Eady will be present also in other ”Hard” parts of Heat as well as in “The Insider”; the piece Late evening in Jersey by Brian Eno has recently been recorded on a compilation of unpublished works called Curiosities Vol. 1 (Opal Records).
Top O’ The Morning To Ya written by Eric Schrod, Leon Demant and Willie Dixon is played by the House Of Pain (taken from the House of Pain album) and it is in background during the meeting between Vincent and the informer Richard Torena in the Disco Club; By The Time I Get To Phoenix written by Jimmy Webb is probably droned by Vincent Hanna during the informer Albert Torena questioning.
Will Gaines by Eric Clapton is a piece taken from the soundtrack of Rush, a 1991 film directed by Lili Fini Zanuck.
As far as Ultramarine by Michael Brook is concerned, there is a special, unreleased version used when Vincent Hanna, in an understandable fit of hysteria, throws away his TV set at a traffic light.
There are two versions of the End Title composed by Moby and called God Moving Over the Face of the Waters: the “soft” one included in the official CD and the one included both in the single That’s When I Reach for My Revolver God Moving Over the Face of the Waters Heat Mix and in the above quoted album I like to score.However, the one in the film is slightly different from both these latter.
The pieces composed by Elliot Goldenthal and produced by Mathias Gohl are listed below among the others; the composer has made use, for some pieces, of the collaboration of the Kronos Quartet, the contemporary string quartet already known for collaborating with Philip Glass and with the The guitar orchestra Deaf Elk leading Page Hamilton of metal band Helmet
