Filming heat in a Heatwave.
As if the ambient heat is not enough, we introduce multiple burners and flame bars.
Heat itself is not visible to the camera, just its effects on the air and light. We read as 'hot' the
flares of the sun, the movement of heat haze that a flame bar induces on a longer lens or the shift in colour temperature towards the 'warmer' end of the spectrum. Even the red sand of our location contributes to the look of Heat.
“I can feel the heat closing in . . .”
William Burroughs, The Naked Lunch
