The video above is from ‘Mirror’, a film by Russian master Andrei Tarkovsky shot with USSR Lomo anamorphic glass which is now winding up on eBay. Director Tarkovsky shot the original Solaris with anamorphic lenses and is up there as one of my favourite filmmakers of all time. He was an artist in the true uncompromising sense of the word – also probably the best cinematographer the world has ever seen. With the barest of sound track or dialogue you can feel so much purely through his imagery and his camera work.
My name is Trey Vollmer and I’ve been pursuing filmmaking for three years now – I could not love it more! I also work as a full-time personal trainer here in Jacksonville, Florida. Believe it or not I have found that flexibility, strength and endurance play a key role in operating a camera. If I need a high angle I will get on top of a roof or climb a tree!
