Just wanted to share with you all a project Ben and I worked on over the past week following a series of rehearsals and a screen test that I shared a few weeks ago
. The project is a scene re-creation from one of our favorite films, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford
It's a lengthy film, but probably the most well-shot in current existence- just absolutely beautiful every frame, and I recommend it to everyone. Partly the reason we were/are so drawn to it to recreate.
Here's the project:[size="5"]

[sub]The following is a scene recreation from one of our favorite films, 'The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford', in which Jesse arrives at the ranch of Ed Miller, sitting to hear his one last plea for his life.
An Atomic Production
Corey Cleary-Stoner as Ed Miller
Blake Blair as Jesse James
Directed by Ben Adams
Produced by Andrew Adams
Asst. Director Naeem Munaf
Production Coordinator Chase Arrington
Dir. of Photography Ben Adams
Edited by Andrew Adams
This was created for the University of Texas at Austin film production course RTF366D - Directing Workshop. The assignment was to take a scripted scene, rehearse, and shoot it yourself- preferably without relating to the actual film.
While many chose to re-contextualize their scenes, plot, or characters- we felt, while it'd be near impossible to try and recreate the brilliance of Roger Deakins' cinematography, it was important to retain the relationship of Ed and Jesse and the Western, period setting. We're pretty happy with the result.
Also, I know the 'Atomic' name isn't as prevalent here as it was on FXHome, but if any of you enjoyed this or have seen some of our other, previous work- be sure to "like" us on Facebook here: www.facebook.com/atomicpro
Thanks, and enjoy!
