Architectural Photography - Fabio De Farro | Backstage Photography, a day behind the scenes – Part 1
The city, a dense concentration of living beings, a constellation of buildings, with any sort of possible infrastructure man can imagine, is a place that will never bore me. For instance, this huge structure, so called Tangenziale Est, in the city of Rome, is the practical result of a major project conceived in 1962 by the great urbanist Kenzo Tange. While the initial idea was of course good and honourable, nowadays it may look less attractive and degrading, however it has become part of Rome's environment. This node is located between the Prenestina area and Porta Maggiore and is astonishing how it relates directly to 10 stories buildings just few meters away. This skyline is so unexpected considering that just beyond the Aurelian walls you relate to constructions built 2000 years ago and that are still there.

Backstage Photography, a day behind the scenes – Part 1

Following an Italian short movie production

 

A while ago a friend and film director, Francesco D’Ignazio, asked if I would like to document a day in his usual filmmaking process of a short independent movie called “Sciuhhh Aereo” recently shown at the 73 rd Cinema di Venezia Film Festival.

At first I was very flattered , but at the same time also a bit uncomfortable as this is not usually within my domain of work. I told him this, and he felt somehow that it would have worked out. Actually I’m a real fan of filmmaking techniques, all of them, since pre internet era and this gave me some sort of natural feeling with the process and most of all, yes! lets leave the comfort zone!

The established shooting day arrived, and suddenly it was true love! I was surrounded by a group of creatives, professionals, full or part-time, concentrated in their work, all mentally connected to each other in silence, doing what they had to do when necessary. The budget was very low yet the professionalism I saw was outstanding. I was hypnotized several times by how practical props, essential lighting elements, mixed however with advanced filming machinery all combined with knowledgeable technicians and actors end up with an interesting product under the direction of Francesco D’Ignazio. I am very glad to have had the opportunity to see this.

I have decided to separate this post into two parts. This is the first group of images. You may visit Part 2 here
