The Bee Man

Director of Photography: Randy Larcombe

The Bee Man is a film about a friend of cinematographer Randy Larcombe, who lives in country South Australia. It was shot over three trips in an 18-month period, on a Canon 5dMk3 with prime lenses and using all available light.

From the word go, Larcombe wanted to keep the colour palette very simple and ‘honey like’ with gold being the main dominant colour, green and blue the secondary colours. Larcombe’s film making style is very organic, never really knowing exactly how a film will look and sound until it comes to the edit. While shooting though, he is constantly observing and looking for little visual moments especially when it comes to the way natural light is acting, and captures them.
