The Photography

Light will be sought as close as possible to natural light. That real light will be achieved using like Key-light6 the natural light of the filming locations and by using a minimal support of technical means, like for example, an inner quartz. The lenses used will be ranging between the 507 lens and the tele lens. Whenever possible, artificial light will not be used, but techniques of bounced light will be used when needed. Furthermore, light will be solved, technically in the most suitable way so that in the future this documentary may be kinescoped without problems. Later and in the search for a more realistic light, this technique will give the film an attractive grainy look of a documentary recorded under extreme light conditions.

Sound and the Music Score

Following a previous study of the characteristic sound of the filming locations, we will seek to create a global and unifying ambient sound coherent with the main topic, a sound that serves as a counterpoint to the image, avoiding redundancy to its fullest. In order to do this, sounds will be selected in the same way as the images. We will seek, analogously to what has been noted in the paragraph of light, a sound as realistic as possible. In order to do this and to achieve the pursued realistic and vital texture, the overall sound of the film will always be captured live, avoiding studio dubbing.

Regarding the music score, Ukrainian rhythms will be written especially for the film.

For the of sound-on-location recording, there will be enough equipment to make the capture of direct sound possible. The use of a directional microphone, besides the camera microphone, and one or two wireless microphones are essential.
