Cinematography by Tara Violet Niami
Photographer-Cinematographer Tara Violet Niami and the Director, took an afternoon to shoot test shots with a 14-year old model-actress in downtown LA. It was a chance to experiment with the look of the film, and to break the ice of working together as a team. It was their first collaboration, and hopefully the beginning of a long-term creative partnership on Tiger Within and future movies. Everything was shot with natural light and a mirrorless Sony DSLR camera. The model is Margo Josefsohn, who we ended up casting for the starring role of Casey.
