Film Fervor: Episode 112 - David Jaffe
7 days ago
Today I'm joined by David Jaffe, a professional photographer from North Carolina and the owner of Lift-Off Studios. He's here today to talk about his unique project called Blood Night. I first reached out to David because he's published a Photo-Novel, a graphic novel using pictures rather than illlustrations, because I wanted to talk to him about the process and learn some things as we are about to create a photo-novel ourselves, but I certainly got more than I expected with this interview. David made the Photo Novel and, to build buzz and excitement for it while it was being made, he also made a short film to promote the project. What I like about this process is that it mixes multiple types of media and formats to tell a complete story and that they don't shy away from using new and exciting methods to get it done. Blood Night is a Punisher Cosplay story that follows Frank Castle on a unique mission that ends rather differently than what you'd come to expect from a Punisher story line. I won't go into details or spoil it at all, you can read the entire graphic novel for free on Lift-Off Studio's page (here) and also check out the short film they made. The amount of information David shared during this episode takes up over an hour and a half and I had to cut down some of our conversation from what I had recorded because there was so much that he had to say. What I love about talking with David is that he's completely open and forthcoming with all of his techniques, style, drive, motivation, and what he plans to do in the future with this genre. He really embodies the whole "Indie Community" that I keep talking about, where we all band together to help one another realize our visions.
