Hello, Hello!


In this episode, we have a conversation with Director, Producer, and Cinematographer Haley Watson. We talk about the Academy Award Winning film ‘Queen Of Basketball,’ her film ‘The Getaway,’ working with Director Ben Proudfoot, the concept of “measurable error,” the challenges of shooting outside of her home country (U.S.), the importance of building community, and her formula for getting incredible shots. Enjoy!
