Being a Cinema Production Major in Paris

March 26, 2018
by Dana Fazziola

People from across the world flock to Paris for its rich history in art, architecture, and intellectual achievement: its expansive avenues and manicured gardens inspire people in these fields to innovate. It's the same for me. I felt a draw to Paris' penchant for self-reflection and found myself feeling more motivated to practice my art than ever before.

Paris kept me on my toes. I spent my free time trying to see this magnifique city with a cinematic eye, while still staying true to my personal aesthetic. These are some of my favorite attempts at seeing cinematically — all in an anamorphic ratio.

 A foyer in the Palais Garnier, framed by two regal busts.
 Classic Parisian homes juxtaposed with the ultra-modern Center Pompidou.
 A quaint afternoon at the Luxembourg Gardens.
 Rows of chandeliers at Notre-Dame.
 A view of the Holy Trinity Cathedral from below.
 City urbanization in the neighborhood of Clichy-Batignolles.
 Some friends on the Seine.
 Pillars at the Pantheon dwarf the surrounding neighborhood.
 Overlooking the city center from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
 A photography project for my Mass Media & Fashion course, showing off the glamor of the city — featuring the oddly gorgeous Arts et Métiers metro station.
