Game of Thrones DP takes the LG V30 for a spin

David Franco is a Director of Photography on some of HBOs best-known shows Game of Thrones and Westworld. As such, he knows a thing or two about shooting video so its curious to hear what he thinks of the LG V30.

He shot a video titled A Day in the Life. Theres no plot here, just a variety of shots at different times of day. Nature shots, city scapes, his children, Franco shot the kind of videos youre likely to shoot yourself.

Theres nothing special here, Franco says about his video. But the video quality is beautiful, the shooting approaches diverse. Its morsels of life on their way to becoming memories.

He praised the Cine Video Mode of the V30, which allowed him to change the mood of a scene by applying different color grading.

As a DP, Franco does location scouting and planning each scene. For that, he doesnt use a DSLR but a phone instead its easier to carry and runs tools that allow him to check the position of the sun at any given time. Important things when youre planning the next epic shot.
