Film Director Terry R. Wickham has chosen Adrian Popescu to be the Director of Photography for Abandoned. Wickham says, “There were some excellent candidates to choose from and it really came down to a toss up between a Cinematographer from Romania and another from London. I’m convinced either guy would have done a wonderful job, but I decided to go with Adrian because not only was I impressed with his reel (click here to view one of his many reels) and experience, but he wasn’t fazed but the lack of funds and he expressed how much he wanted to shoot a suspense film with a director who cares about the visual look as much as I do.
Plus Adrian’s type of camera and gear were ideal for the shooting situation we will be in for this movie, which will be happening in a about two months from now (mid-April target date).”
