Director Terry R. Wickham is proud to announce that Adrian Popescu will be the Director of Photography on his upcoming horror-thriller Gruesome Threesome.
Wickham says, “We had such a great working relationship on Abandoned that I wanted to carry that onto Gruesome Threesome. What I love most about Adrian’s work is how we communicate together. The relationship between a director and cinematographer is super critical on a movie. That fact that we can understand each other and see the same vision is a beautiful thing.
What’s also remarkable about Adrian is that he brings things to the table that doesn’t detract my vision, but instead embellishes it, which was one of the special surprises I experienced on Abandoned.
It goes without saying a DP should to be a master of light and lens. But I got more than that with Adrian on Abandoned. That was apparent to other people when they saw the footage and were blown away.
When I showed footage of Abandoned to two producers for a movie I was being considered as director, they immediately wanted to hire him for the movie. Then more proof is when I showed Abandoned to one of my director friends and quickly asked what kind of camera Abandoned was shot with, because he was so impressed that he wanted to buy the camera (the the real reason it looked so good was not just the camera itself but Adrian’s expertise with it). These are just a few examples of why I’m ecstatic that Adrian is returning as my cinematographer.”
