Brandon McCormick is the founder of Whitestone Motion Pictures, an independent outfit dedicated to storytelling via film. Having just completed principal photography on a film called Heartless, Brandon paused to write a brief piece on why doing what he does enlivens him so much.
Teams of people labor day in and day out to physically move entire production elements, creating dolly movements, moving production forward and telling the story with each setup. Organizational teams burn their brilliant minds at bringing each detail together, making it all seem effortless. Numbers and budgets, callsheets and shotlists. Technology is harnessed to bring forth images, edited together in such a way that they trick your mind into believing that what you are seeing isn’t a random collection of still images, but a single cohesive story that touches you to your very soul.
