Put A Ring On It Interviews: Ronny Law_Dp

Interview Ronny Law – Dp

This was my 1st experience working with Mr. Law. He came onto the project a mere four days before production. He turned out to be one of the best decisions we made. I’ve never worked with a DP or camera op I’ve trusted as much. In addition he’s a great personality to have on set. He gets it done, but keeps things light. I look forward to working more with him in the future.

1. So, this was your 1st feature film as a DP. What made you think you could pull it off?
Ronny_Hiring reliable people who actually knew what they were doing. Lol No, seriously. I had to pull myself together and tell myself it's like working on 10 short films in 5 days. EASY! Lol 

2. What was the most difficult aspect of production?
Ronny_Hiring the right people at the right time.

3. What do you think of my hair?
Ronny_Really?? LOL I think it has different personalities.

Sorry, we were looking for really cool or stunning. 

4. We shot with the Cannon 5d, how would you characterize the experience? Would you use it again?
Ronny_The characterization I would give the Cannon 5d is inconsistent and annoying. No, I would not shoot another feature with it if it were up to me.

5. We had a lot of lens, but no zoom. Why is that? 
Ronny_Budget cuts. 

6. We used a healthy mix of handheld, static tripod and dolly. How do you feel about mixing so many different styles into a single project?
Ronny_I feel it makes you stand out as a filmmaker. It's always a good thing not be a typical cookie cutter filmmaker.

7. You were my 5th favorite crew member. Rank the rest of us.
Ronny_I don't remember everyone else. Including you!! 5th favorite... Really??? LOL

wrong again. correct anwser would have been.1. Me
Doesn't matter after that.

8. If you go back in time and re-answer question 2, would you and what would you say?
Ronny_Yes, 5 days!!!! Wow. 

9.Me_I've grown tired of asking questions...make one up and answer it.
Ronny_Who was the most beautiful person we had on set?
Heather! Damn she was fine. LOL Oh yeah, she might have been #1 on my favorite crew member list. LOL 

Me_Wait, who the hell was Heather?

Thanks Ronny, your a man amongst men.


  1. Thank you again for being who are. Till we work again bro.

    P.S. Your hair is kinda cool. LOL

    Heather was one of the catering girls. She was on set Friday I believe.
