Shot on EPIC DRAGON: Diary of a Teenage Girl

The celebrated Sundance darling, Diary of a Teenage Girl hits theaters this weekend – directed by Marielle Heller and shot by Brandon Trost on RED EPIC paired with the gorgeous PANAVISION C-SERIES & G-SERIES ANAMORPHICS.

Trost took home the US Drama – Special Jury Award for Cinematography at Sundance this year. Set in 1970’s San Francisco and based on Phoebe Gloeckner‘s graphic novel of the same name, Diary of a Teenage Girl is a change of pace for Trost, who has recently lensed such big-budget comedies as The Interview, Neighbors and This is the End.

Minnie’s narration of her own life – her “all-consuming thoughts about sex and men” is anything but precious, and appropriately swings between heartache and puppy love with plenty of sexual adventures in between. Sara Gunnarsdóttir ‘s animation – in the style of Gloeckner’s original graphic novel – intermittently appears, layered over Trost’s photography. The rough, child-like drawings of her very adult thoughts playfully interact with the original image – a novel and charming presentation of that awkward in-betweenness that is teenagehood.
