    PINOY CINEMATOGRAPHER MATTHEW LIBATIQUE LENSES “A STAR IS BORN”  

     

    He served as Director of Photography for Darren Aronofsky’s daring films Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, Noah, Black Swan and, most recently, mother!  Now, Oscar-nominated cinematographer, Filipino-American Matthew Libatique lenses director Bradley Cooper’s critically-acclaimed romantic drama, A Star is Born.

    In this new take on the iconic love story, Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life.  Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive.

    It was important to Bradley Cooper that A Star is Born’s cinematic style have a first-person perspective, with the hope of giving the audience the ability to experience the intoxicating energy of performing live before a crowd.  

    To achieve this sensation, Cooper and director of photography Matthew Libatique chose to film all performance sequences from the perspective of the performers: that meant the singers’ and musicians’ immediate POV and onstage interactions with each other.  No wide shots of concerts from the audience perspective; the lens would live inside the performance.

    Producer Bill Gerber states, “Bradley took a very specific approach with how he told the story cinematically.  There are certain angles from traditional concert movies you’ll never see in this film.  Instead, he and Matty put you in the middle of what it feels like to start becoming famous, what it feels like to have been famous for a long time, and what it feels like to lose that.  It’s very visceral.”

    Libatique has shot his fair share of music and concert videos as well as feature films.  “He’s an artist,” Cooper states.  “I got to meet him through Darren Aronofsky, who he has done many films with, and we hit it off right away.  I told him we wouldn’t have a lot of days and we’d be moving fast, here’s the color palette I see, here’s a little about the opening composition, and he just got it.”

    Libatique incorporated various shooting techniques, including handheld, Steadicam, long tracking shots following Jackson Maine from backstage to onstage, and so on, frequently keeping the focus extremely up close and personal on its subjects.  “Thank God for Matty and his crew, they were incredible,” Cooper emphasizes.  “And our camera operator, Scott Sakamoto.  I found myself watching him operate, he’s like a dancer.  One of the greatest of all time.”

    Black Swan earned Matthew Libatique his first Academy Award nomination, as well as nominations from BAFTA and The American Society of Cinematographers.  He was honored with both the New York Film Critics’ and Los Angeles Film Critics’ awards, as well as the Independent Spirit Award in cinematography for the same film.

    Libatique has ongoing collaborations with several directors, including Spike Lee, for whom he photographed Chi-Raq, Miracle at St. Anna, She Hate Me and Inside Man; Joel Schumacher, with Tigerland and Phone Booth; and Jon Favreau, with Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens.

    His other feature film credits include Venom for Ruben Fleischer; Straight Outta Compton for F. Gary Gray; Gothika for Mathieu Kassovitz; Everything Is Illuminated for Live Schreiber; and Ruby Sparks for directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.  A Star is Born marks his first collaboration with director Bradley Cooper.

     

    In Philippine cinemas October 10, A Star is Born is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    Word of mouth talaga ang ating pag-asa. Sold out naman daw ang ibang sinehan like GB3 pero sa ibang SM malls iilan lang ang nanood. 

    Btw, pinakinggan pala ni Songbird ang OST and she tweeted it. So, good WOM na rin pero sana panoorin ng maraming celebrities at magtweet sila about the movie.

    where is the comparison between the original movie and the remake

    saw it. nothing different but essential remake for the modern audience. if you are talking about the 1937 the diff. is that it is all bout acting but the 1977, 1954 and 2018 are pretty much about music. of course there are some alterations done but not that major.

    maybe that is the reason for the low turnout?

    I doubt it. It's just the lack of promotion here. It is slaying in the US naman.

    Some cinemas if not sold out were packed during evening screenings. Weekdays kasi kaya konti pa lang nakakanood. I'm sure it'll spike this weekend and kung maraming celebrities at social media influencers ang manonood at magrereview or tweet about the movie mas marami ang magiging interested manood. 

    Good word of mouth talaga ang kailangan since walang hype dito sa atin ang movie.

    Yes! It's slaying the US BO. Boxoffice mojo updated their prediction. It has a chance to outsell Venom this coming weekend. The movie exceeded the prediction last week hopefully the same happens for this weekend. Lols.
