a brief interview with ERIK BRUNETTI:
COLOR: Do you have anything you'd like to say about those shots with Will Oldham that i could include? Maybe about that day?
EB: Yea, actually, the one that was converted to B&W (the yellow tinted one). I just decided to shoot it on the balcony, to get natural light, but the reflection from the film on the lense and the cream walls made it look extremely yellow.
That's interesting, so you had film on the lens. Would you call that yellow burst a happy accident?
I knew it would look good, but I didn't know it would saturate that much... We [Will and I] were both into it.
Oh ya, I hadn't even thought about the fact that these were polaroids so Will could see how they turned out.
Yeah, we laid them all out on the bed in his hotel room and went over them, and experimented with the film treatments and lighting. It was a very casual shoot, he was on the phone and I was shooting.
What type of camera/film did you use? do they still make that film?
I used Spectra film.
Brunetti has a collection coming out with F@BRICK (japan) for Holiday 09.
