For visual effects supervisor Wayne Brinton, the secret to doing great work is great relationships. That means that the first task in every job is to put a face to the name. Not only does work move more smoothly that way, he says, but even a short period of time together on set can save days of work back at the studio.

With racial segregation, the Cold War, McCarthyism and the growth of suburban culture, it was a time of powerful social constraints, crying out for change. Jack Kerouac’s novel On the Road, published in 1957, follows a small group of mavericks on their travels across America as they search for meaning and independence in a culture of control and conformity. Oblique FX completed all of the visual effects for On The Road, Walter Salles’s adaptation of the novel. The facility delivered 110 shots in all, including matte painting and historical clean-ups to help bring to life 1950s America.

After almost twenty years as a professional cinematographer, Jendra Jarnagin has reached the point in her career when she doesn’t have to take every single opportunity that comes her way. Her personal style, which she describes as “a beautified naturalism,” keeps her in demand for all kinds of work. So, despite the fact that one of her passions in the business is independent narrative film she hesitated when she was approached about shooting writer/director Jeff Lipsky’s new feature Molly’s Theory of Relativity. The budget was extremely low, even by independent standards and the shooting schedule was limited to only ten days. Creatively, the script called for nearly the entire movie to be shot in a single New York City apartment. Then there was the fact that Lipsky just doesn’t like digital cinematography.
