The Wood Brothers are a Director of Photography (DOP) duo, comprised of Timothy and Ivan Wood. Having both worked as DOPs separately, we found we also enjoyed working together, and soon realised the benefit of having two pairs of eyes on the screen. We were taught by the same cinematographer and found no problem synergising together on set.
Because we are a DOP team, we can work at a fast pace. For example, during shoots one of us can pre-light and check the next setup while the other continues the previous shot. We can also easily split into two units as well as both operating for two camera shoots. This not only allows for faster transitions, but also means we can do more complicated setups that wouldn’t be possible on our own.
