Ever since he was a boy, Jack Sommer has been heavily influenced by the world of cinema. The initial part of this project started as a way to document all of those movies. Not just any and every movie, but the ones that really stood out and made an impact - which there are still a lot of within those parameters.
The other concept developed for this study was to showcase and analyze how photography is intertwined with cinema. After all, movies are just "moving pictures" at their base, right? Each post therefore includes a careful selection of the best frames, or at least personal favorites, from a particular film. A way to pay homage to the cinematography. Also included in each post is a plot summary, commentary, the Director's name, and of course the Cinematographer's name (aka the DOP - Director of Photography).
For now, as the rest of the site focuses on short films for now, this will serve as an archive for the work done on features. Enjoy. Will probably return with more later.
