Trilogy had the pleasure of working with DOP Warrick Mcleod filming the opening and closing shots for Matador Pictures' ‘Generation Z’. Considering the circumstances, Warrick was the perfect DOP for the task. We had to create a live-link feed to the director who was sitting watching and giving direction in the UK. That meant whilst Warrck was filming on the Alexa XT Plus, with a cast and crew on a mountain verge in Cape Town, he was constantly communicating with a team in London who were able to view everything his camera saw live, and they were giving instant feedback.
Warrick was not only professional and creative, his temperament and patience made the challenging production a smooth, enjoyable success.

Warrick is everything I like in a Director of Photography.  He's highly technical.  He's comfortable scaling to work with truckloads of
lights or a single source.   He constantly adapts his style to that of
the director, but brings a lot of great ideas to the party.  He offers up ways to make the production more economical and efficient and isn't
afraid to get his hands dirty to make it happen.   But on top of all
this, he consistently creates gorgeous images.

Master Harold and the Boys D.I.T


Dear all,

I just wanted to thank you for your splendid work on the film. As you all well know, this was my first movie (having spent my professional life mostly in the theatre and multiple camera performance television), and God knows, I had a lot to learn! Still do.  Nonetheless, I couldn't have asked for a more dedicated and hard working crew. No matter the circumstances (rain, heat, impending mob riot), you managed always to keep on top of your game, and to get me
the most out of my day that was possible to get. I am very grateful.  The early assemblies of the film look terrific, even better than I thought they would, which is a tribute to you.  I am very hopeful that our work will cut together into a very fine film we can all be proud of.

My sincere thanks for your dedication to the movie, and all of your tremendous hard work. Needless to say, I wish you well in all your future endeavors (and with better catering, please God!), and, perhaps, if I'm lucky, our paths will cross again.

Sincerely,

Lonny
