“KEEP IT SIMPLE, LEARN HOW TO USE ONE CAMERA TO MAKE THE BEST FILM POSSIBLE.
Famous director Werner Herzog once said” Keep it simple, focus and efficient, don’t shoot coverage, learn how to use one camera to make the best film possible.
I agree with Director Werner Herzog on this, especially when I found out that most of his remarkable film like”Aguirre, the Wrath of God” and “Fitzcarraldo” among others were shot in single camera.
Simply because at the end of the day the camera does not only sit there but actually is a part of the characters, it breaths on its own, had a meaning to itself and becomes a part of the storyteller.
There are times when we filmmakers feel really tedious just having one camera because there are times when we want to capture the wide and the close up at the same time but as the saying goes learn the rules before you break them, and how can we learn the rules when we opted for the easy set up 2 to 3 cameras at one shot.So on this rule, I would agree strongly with Werner Herzog, learn how to use one camera to make the best film possible.

Our feature film “Year After” written, produced, and directed by Albert Gayo starring Angelo Carl, Arnel Hasigan, Lorenz Binghay and Carl Lorenz used the one camera concept and the drama that ensued about unconditional love, friendship and betrayal were all captured in this process.
Year After is a story of unconditional love, of real friends, and betrayal based on true story of OFW (Overseas Filipino workers) who toil for their families back home and their hope, dreams, and trials, directed by OFW filmmaker Albert Gayo coming soon to cinemas near you.
