A filmmaker learns a lot from working on student films in school. For the Young Brothers, the greatest lessons came from their first post-college independent film.
The Writer (2004)
was shot on 35mm film using a Panavision camera and a Nagra to record non-sync sound. As Producer, Koren got to learn things like how to deal with union actors, license music from major labels and get permits from the county and the state. Ryan had the pleasure of reconforming audio after new picture locks and learning about pull-downs for film speeds. This was their first opportunity to work on a professional dub stage.
