A return to the States, this time taking in the wide open spaces of Washington State, Montana and Idaho. Big Skies, mountains and forests... very striking and surprisingly remote terrain.
This was the first time that I have used the McWilliams Eyeliner
... one of the many (together with the Interrotron and the EyeDirect) Beam Splitter devices which will allow your subject to engage directly with the lens. Narrative films like 'A Clockwork Orange' and 'The Silence of the Lambs' have employed the unsettling effect of direct engagement with the audience's eyeline. In more recent times documentaries have begun to employ this device. Although in television the audience is perhaps more used to direct engagement with say a presenter's gaze... the addition of 'interviewed' subjects talking directly to them remains a powerful narrative device.
