Film director Terry R. Wickham is delighted to announce that Nicholas Prainito (pronounced PRAY-nee-toh) has taken over as Director of Photography on his upcoming suspense-thriller Double Vision.
Wickham says, “Because of a creative differences, the previous DP decided not to do the film. So I was forced to find a new cinematographer.
Nicholas was already going to handle all the aerial photography needed in Double Vision, with drones. So we discussed the movie as him being the Director of Photography also. After speaking in detail and seeing his impressive work, it became crystal clear he was the right visual partner for this movie.
What impresses me the most about Nick is his can-do attitude of trying literally anything. I saw it first-hand when he filmed both the clip for our Indiegogo Double Vision campaign and the GoFundMe video clip for Devil’s Five.
Some cinematographers feel you can only do certain things with equipment. Nicholas is more open-minded and willing to go for it, which is something I really hope for with a cinematographer.
The fact is Nicholas is highly equipped to handle the type of moving cameras I see with my vision of Double Vision. We will be utilizing Steadicam, dolly moves, cranes and drones besides more conservative camera setups. My particular directing style will really be on full display in this movie.
Also with Nick, it’s actually going to be the first time in a very long time that I’m working with a DP who lives on Long Island. I think because he based more local than some of the others I’ve worked with recently, it will be beneficial to the production, since we will be filming here on the island and in Suffolk County to be specific.
We’re going to get together soon to watch some movies I have in reference to my vision for Double Vision. I’m looking forward to collaborating with Nick and making the most cinematic thrilling experience we can together.”
