What elements of cinematography do you need to create a great film? In today’s episode, we chat with Brandon Roots, the cinematographer of King Jack, to learn about his methods and what he discovered while making the film.

We also discuss:

• Brandon’s ongoing collaboration with the film’s director and writer, Felix Thompson,
• How a DP balances commercial work and feature films,
• How Brandon’s visual arts background influences his film work

King Jack is a drama depicting a life-changing summer weekend of a scrappy fifteen year-old kid. Trapped in a violent feud with a cruel older bully, Jack’s got all the problems he can handle.

So when Jack’s aunt falls ill and his runty younger cousin must stay with him for the weekend, the last thing Jack wants to do is look after him.

King Jack is a tough and tender coming of age story about friendship and finding happiness in rough surroundings.
