I’ve been watching a lot of new programs recently, main ones being Suits, and Line of Duty. I’ve been trying to get a certain DoP style that I can match with our Flesh and Blood film. The movements and constant on-going shoulder rig options for Line of Duty seems a lot more attractive to me for more intense scenes. Although the smoothness of what Suits is shot, mainly either being on Steadicam or Dolly work with slow zooms and not abrupt as much as Line of Duty is.
