October 21, 2014 marks the official release blu-ray release of Orson Welles’, F for Fake – released by the Criterion Collection.  I am overwhelmingly pleased to say that my stock footage played a part in the packaging design, DVD face, and program menus.

When I first started in my journey into cinematography, I spent a lot of time studying the films of Orson Welles.  From ground breaking one-take shot in Touch of Evil to surreal visuals of the Trial, I was definitely a fan.  When corresponding with Criterion, I noted how I only owned a bootleg DVD of F for Fake that I had purchased on ebay more than a decade prior.  At the time, the movie was otherwise unavailable.  Needless to say, I can’t possibly overstate how awesome it is for me to be a part of this Blu-Ray release – and a Criterion Collection release at that!  Now I have an official copy of the movie and also get to be a part of it.   :)
