12 June 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eric Koretz was the cinematographer for Sam Esmail's "Comet." His previous credits include the award-winning documentary "Dragonslayer" and AMC webseries "The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks." The film stars Emmy Rossum ("The Phantom of the Opera," "Mystic River") and Justin Long ("Live Free or Die Hard," "Dodgeball") and will have its world premiere on the 13th of July. [Editor's Note: Indiewire reached out to filmmakers with films playing at the 20th La Film Festival (June 11-19) to ask them about how they shot their indie, and what advice they had for other filmmakers. We'll be posting their responses throughout the run of the festival. Go Here for the master list.] What camera and lens did you use? Red Epic with Cooke S4 primes. What was the most difficult shoot on your movie and how did you pull it off? The scenes at the cemetery were difficult because we couldn't control the time of day in which to shoot because we didnt have much time there. »

His award-winning debut Dragonslayer was a major achievement for a debut and played extremely well on the indie docu circuit, and we’re thinking Tristan Patterson might be excessively fine-tuning his introduction to this non-fiction true crime story as to not appear like your run-of-the-mill caper film.

Gist: Based on the article “The Yankee Bandit: The Life and Times of Eddie Dodson, World’s Great Bank Robber”, written by Timothy Ford and scripted by Patterson, this tells the true story of suave hipster and celebrity-magnet Eddie Dodson, who in 1980s Los Angeles owned and ran one of the city’s most stylish art deco furniture stores and happened to rob »
