BLCast, Episode 1 – An Interview With Shane HurlbutBL News
The very first episode of BLCast, the official podcast of BorrowLenses.com, is now live!
We’re excited to bring you something really special for our inaugural episode. A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate to speak with Shane Hurlbut, director of photography for such films as Drumline, Terminator Salvation, and, most recently, the military action thriller, Act of Valor.
Many of you will recognize Shane’s name. That’s because he’s become something of a pioneer in the world of filmmaking, especially for those of you using HDDSLRs to create video. Shane has been at the forefront of the DSLR video revolution, going so far as to use cameras like the Canon 5D Mark II and the 7D for about 70% of his latest endeavor, Act of Valor.
I spoke with Shane just a few days before the release of Act of Valor, and had a great conversation about his life, his career, and the challenges of shooting mere feet from live tracer rounds.

A quick note about the audio: since I spoke to Shane over Skype, the audio cut out in a couple of places. Rather than recut the interview to eliminate those parts, I left most of it as-is.
