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.
