Concept

As with the references given by the client we are going to explore the different areas and space in which these anamorphic lenses can be used and showcase how they can add to each of these spaces. We will explore the lenses in six spaces all giving there own challenges and environments to work with - be it light, space, cast or narrative.

The spaces include a dance group in an industrial urban area, a beach transition into underwater, a couple on a date in a forest, a fashion shoot in an apocalyptic setting on an unfinished bridge and follow a dog on the beach. 

Each section will highlight the important aspects of the anamorphic lens as per the list of features below.
