On April 26th, 2012 I got a chance to have a conversation with Po Chan, Director of “The Ticket” which was the Canon roll out movie for the new EOS 1D-C digital cinema HDSLR. There had been so much buzz and discussion about the technology used to shoot the movie that I thought the art and the story was not getting enough… uh… “screen time”… so I decided I only wanted to discuss Po’s original script and her technique for working with a crew as more of an artist than a director.
The interview ended up becoming “Episode 71” of the Digital Convergence Podcast that I co-host with Carl Olson from Atlanta.
I would HIGHLY recommend you take the 50 minutes or so it takes to listen to this interview. Po is a facinating woman and her artistic vision is extremely inspirational.
