The Cinematography Podcast Episode 65: Director Adam Rehmeier and DP Jean-Phillipe Bernier
Dinner in America is a surreal punk-rock comedy filled with gleeful anarchy directed by Adam Rehmeier and shot by cinematographer Jean-Phillipe Bernier. The film creates a world of heightened reality with a vibrant, primary color palette that Adam, Jean-Phillipe and production designer Francesca Palombo discussed at length to create an 80’s feel. Both Adam and Jean Phillipe have a love of punk rock, and the soundtrack for the movie features a lot of original music. It took awhile to cast the characters Simon and Patty, played by actors Kyle Gallner and Emily Skeggs, who are two oddball loners looking to take down all the assholes in their “normal” Midwestern town.
Dinner in America premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and has yet to receive a release date.

Close Focus: Hot Rod Cameras is building a screening room. Come see it if you’re in the Burbank area and inquire about pricing for screening room rental rates. Illya and Ben discuss what’s necessary for creating your own home theater/screening room.
Ben’s short end: Slasher, a social network for horror fans, and the rise of social networks for different demographics. Also, his idea to turn the classic book “Goodnight Moon” into horror movie.
Illya’s short end: Branded content, and how companies are looking for new ways to market products. For example, The Verge, an online magazine, has branded content from OnStar, the car navigation company, and it’s hard to tell the difference between paid advertising content and their own editorial content.
