The Technique and Dreamlike Practices of DP Bruno Delbonnel

From No Film School​ <>> "Learn how the four-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer creates the highly visual style of films like Amelie and Inside Llewyn Davis. Bruno Delbonnel came to international attention when he built the world of Amelie Poulin through blitzes of light and color. Ensuing collaborations with directors like Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the Coen Brothers, and Tim Burton led to the development of a trademark softly-lit, dreamlike style that can be seen in all his films and is immediately recognizable in today's cinema landscape. If it ain't broke, don't fix it." http://nofilmschool.com/2016/08/dp-bruno-delbonnel

Love this post. Thought the look of INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS was absolutely perfect.

No Film School is a reposter of other people's articles. Since Stage 32 is a site for “creatives” at the very least post a link to the creator of the article instead of a click-bait advertising site. The source is referenced in the linked article, as you must have read. This article on Bruno shooting "Inside Llewyn Davis" in American Cinematographer is actually worth reading. Not often the case in recent magazines. Informative, asks the right questions and decently relatively in-depth, although it could use more behind the scenes stills as opposed to BS stills of actors like some fan magazine. https://www.scribd.com/document/320884271/American-Cinematographer-01-20... The No Know Film School linked article discovered that Bruno uses the same film and lenses as some sort of revelation. Seriously?? Currently there are only 4 different 35mm colour film stocks left available to us, and I believe, but not positive, that he owns the lenses and camera gear. What do people suppose he is going to use? An iPhone and a free app that makes it look “just like a real Hollywood movie”?

Wow. What a nasty comment, Andrew. Someone shares something to help others and you bash them? I looked at your profile and don't see you sharing much. Most of your comments are backhanded swipes and filled with crankiness. Dimi, rest assured, I appreciate all the shares you make on this site and your desire to help others. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

It's not a nasty comment, it's a statement of fact. Quite a bit of so called "content" on NFS doesn't even originate there. It's just regurgitated from elsewhere. In this instance a site called Wolfcrow.

Thanks everyone..If the info shared helps then it had served its purpouse.Where the information originates from thats another matter..I personally have found the info NFS shares quite valuable and helpful and hope it will be helpful to others..D

A site for creatives that ignores creatives work is at odds with itself and the members. The creators of the video in the linked article were not No Film School. As the originators were referenced in the “article” and the video would it not have been better to link to the original site, and not the repost, to be respectful of work of the content creators? Of all groups of people, creatives should not ignore those who created the works. In this case the click-bait site No Film School will get the ad revenue from the article and not the site where the work was done. Should the original creator reap the rewards of their labour or someone else who just appropriates their work? I would hazard a guess that most people here might be able to find the NoFilmSchool site all on their own and, once there, decide what to read on their own. If that is the case, then the purpose in linking to a page on another site that then links to the content on a third site, without any comment or critique on the content is what? On a “creatives” site, is just linking the work of others enough? Or should the link be posted as an “added value” where the posting of a link is only a part of a broader posting that the content of the link supports? If a creatives site encourages the willy-nilly linking to pages on another site, is that creatives site actually creative? If it is ok to post a link to a very lightweight commentary on a brief overview on Bruno Delbonnel, would just posting his name and assuming the readers would do a web search and thus find more info be ok? How about just posting the first name and assuming the readers will search for that name and the subject of the forum it was found in? How about not posting and assuming that creatives will search for info they are interested in? The differences in those preceding choices are quite small and the broader searches may lead to fascinating unexpected discoveries. James there was nothing ad hominem in my post. You say you “looked at my profile” and found I don’t share much. Where did you look? I looked through some of the almost 400 discussions I have taken part in and didn’t find lots of that sharing to be the welcoming of new members to Stage 32, which is my bad. Within those discussions there are lots of postings about cameras, lenses, shooting techniques, planning techniques, film stocks, lights, etc answered from the perspective of a disappearing rarity here on S32, a working professional.
