Comments from Writer/Director – BRUCE LOGAN ASC
“Les Bohemes is an eternal love triangle. Originally written in an hour to replace an existing treatment, I wrote a story with the locations Piccadilly Circus and a Mediterranean fishing village as a given. When the story was accepted I drew on the favorite movies of my youth, the French romantic new wave, to flush out the minimal storyline.
I realized the story I had written was of a similar structure to one of my all time favorite movies, Truffaut’s “Jules and Jim,” but with two women instead of two guys. I then drew from the movie in an unapologetic homage to this masterpiece of French cinema.
The result is “Les Bohemes,” one of my most favorite and effortless creations.
How It Came About
In February 2013 SONY Japan asked if we would produce a film that would showcase three camcorders. NEX-EA50, NEX-FS100 and the NEX-FS700. I approached Bruce Logan ASC and asked if he’d write a script. The result of our labour is Les Bohemes. From commission to delivery was 6 weeks. We shot it in 3 days and it was edited in 1 week.
