Madonna & Basquiat

Director: Adam Wimpenny and Sarah Solemani

Production: Sky / Wild Card Films

Genre: Drama / Comedy

Format: Alexa Mini with Zeiss Super Speed Mk IIs

Duration: 1 x 30 mins

Set in 1980s, New York; captured in 2019, Bulgaria. We filmed this wonderful project at the Nu Boyana studios, using 1 and a half static train carriages beside one station platform set. The effect of movement from the train was almost all in camera, using lighting and camera effects, rear and front projection, mirrors and a little old school rocking back and forth. So much fun to devise and shoot alongside Adam and Sarah. The episode of TV aired in Spring 2019 as part of Sky’s Urban Myths series.

Cineuropa article: “Along with the contradictory, idyllic, optimistic cinematography by David Pimm, which heightens the gloominess of the acts depicted, Avranas emotionally manipulates his viewers and physically manipulates his characters in a crescendo of psychological exploitation.”
