LOS ANGELES – Veteran cinematographer Nan Li has joined the film drama ‘The Last Scene’, from producer Stella Li.
“I am thrilled to take on this challenge and be a part of this engaging new film,” said Li, a veteran of American and Chinese cinema. “It’s a compelling story that helps us face our own fears, biases and weaknesses while telling us something about our own humanity.”
‘The Last Scene’ follows the story of a writer who becomes embroiled in a murder mystery and must then battle his own demons before he can discover the true culprit. The film stars John Carney (‘Jake’s Head’) and Irene Kissinger (‘Theft’).
“Shooting this movie in 35mm film is perhaps one of the most attractive things about ‘The Last Scene’.” Li said. “In China, no one uses 35 mm film anymore because producers don’t want to spend the money on it and take the risk of bad exposure or printing mistakes. The film schools in China don’t teach anything about it as well. It’s a pity.”
Li comes to the production after working on a number of independent films including the film drama ‘As Ye Sow’ the crime drama ‘Carma’, and the film comedy ‘Not for Comedy’, in addition to his work in commercials.
