Kristen Stewart and DP John Guleseria on the set of “Come Swim

Guleseria: “Primarily, we shot with the Alexa Mini because of its versatility in a studio and on location, but we required different camera systems for the underwater and ultra slow-motion work. ‘Come Swim’ had many different locations ranging from built sets on a stage, to deserts, beaches, highways, and an underwater tank. The Alexa Mini was the best camera for most of these situations. In general, I believe the camera you use is less important than how you use it and where you put it, but in this case we also had some very specific tasks to achieve. The Phantom was used for shooting ultra slow-motion shots, and the Red Dragon for various underwater scenes.

Have you seen Kristen Stewart's Come Swim? It's a blatant rip off of her ex-boyfriend's fragrance commercial. Literally. Her poster is of a man wearing a white tee & jeans floating in a pool. Pattinson did the same thing for Dior in 2013, the images are on YT. It was mostly ignored at Sundance & The Wrap reviewer said it was "weak" & she had no vision as a director. It doesn't belong at Cannes, it's taking the spot of someone with real talent. She's a woman, but she's a poor representative.

Thank you for this message, it made me laugh. 

Dior did not invent swimming fully clothed in pools. There is room for lots of people to use these images. 

Also despite what we’d like to believe about the purity of art and talent always rises to the top and blah, blah, blah Cannes is a commercial festival and they can and do choose stuff regardless of quality of content based on celebrity. Her film isn’t even competing for awards in the short film section, it’s just being screened. She’s not taking the spot of someone more talented, she’s taking the spot reserved for celebrity directorial projects.

Hello, potential pen-pal.

I am a college student studying philosophy, with a concentration in ethics. During the school year, you can find me haunting the campus Starbucks or studying with shocking alacrity in the library. However, in summer, you can find me casually swimming, reading odd or fascinating books on my bed, strolling lazily on the ocean shore, or (let’s be honest) Netflixing. I’d rather be writing a plethora of letters, though, than rewatching How I Met Your Mother for the fourth time… I love to be exposed to cultures other than my own, as well as sharing mine with other curious folk.

By the way, I am an avid collector of vinyl records and used books. You’ll probably receive a book or two from me time-to-time. Ergo, if you enjoy books, sending and receiving lots of snail-mail, and having entertaining text conversations, you’ve reached the “write” person (there’s more where that came from).
