Director Terry R. Wickham is thrilled to announce Adrian Popescu will be the Director of Photography for the upcoming political thriller Enhanced Interrogation.
Wickham says, “This project came to me through my Devil’s Five partner Edwin M. Figueroa, who shot The Devil’s Five and Stash segments for me, as well as his own episode called Choke. So my first normal choice would be choose Edwin out of my respect for him. But he passed the project onto me because he couldn’t do it because of his commitments on his job. So naturally I had to think of someone else.
Adrian did such a stellar job as the cinematographer on my film Abandoned, the trailer for another movie I directed and my film Gruesome Threesome, that he was the one I reached out.
Adrian didn’t say yes right away, as he felt he had to read the script first. After he did, he thought it was very strong and agreed to shoot the film. I’m excited we will be working together again.
I don’t like to direct on auto-pilot and I refuse to use some kind of visual-template to shoot a movie. I go into each film with an open mind as what would be the best way to visually capture what’s on the script.
For Enhanced Interrogation, my vision for the film would best be described as balanced. I’ve already finished annotating the shooting script with an assortment of purposeful moving tracking shots, handheld shots that create momentum and static setups that will maximize different lens lengths necesssary to create a stylish depth of field Adrian and I strive for.
This approach is also smart for capturing the acting performances, which are the key ingredient for this film.”
