Amazing Cinematography from Khaled Mohtaseb

By | Inspiration | No Comments

While looking for reference material for Only Child I stumbled across the work of filmmaker and cinematographer Khaled Mohtaseb. He DPed the short above, which is, in my opinion, stunning.

I love that his scenes are not overlit – plenty of shadow, without the contrast seeming too harsh. The detail shots are beautiful, really painting a vivid picture of the world, a large part of which will also be down to the art direction. But most of all, I like how natural yet cinematic his images feel. At a time when it feels like the teal and orange blockbuster look must be at it’s over-saturation point in movies (please?) it’s so refreshing to see films like this which are beautiful precisely because they are not screaming for attention.
