Interview with The Bridge director Marlon Torres

Marlon Torres, based in California not only excels as a Cinematographer but also as a Film Director. I had the chance to interview Marlon last week about his last film The Bridge and I have to say that it’s amazing to think that with only a $7,000 budget, Marlon and his team make this extraordinary 30 minutes movie. A Brilliant job!

Cameraman: Hello Marlon, first of all thank you for the interview. Let’s start by telling us a bit more about yourself and how you got started with your last movie The Bridge?

Marlon: Hello, my name is Marlon Torres and I am an independent filmmaker based in the San Francisco bay area. I specialize in writing, directing, cinematography, and visual effects. I spent my first two years out of college primarily as a CG artist. It’s a rough job. Long hours sitting in dark room. Not the life I imagined seeing myself in. Read more

Some time ago I was invited to shoot a „Behind the Scenes“. Knowing that things would be a bit rough, I asked myself: should I bring my trusted HV30 or give my daughter’s 550D a chance? I did not regret my decision. Filmed and edited using Canon 550D (T2i) and Final Cut Pro
