Kamran Syed Recreates The Godfather

Top Quote The first scene of The Godfather (1972) is considered the best opening in film history. In The Godfather Opening (2018), former University of Southern California Film Student Kamran Syed successfully recreates the tone of The Godfather’s first scene as a Shot for Shot Remake. End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) July 10, 2018 - First, Kamran cast talented Actors - Michael Joseph Muldoon as the Godfather and Peter Arpesella as Bonasera. Kamran did not want the Actors to copy the original Actors (Marlon Brando played the role of the Godfather and Salvatore Corsitto was cast as Bonasera) but rather create their own unique performances. Both Actors succeed, delivering Oscar Gold.

    Second, Kamran scouted dozens of locations to recreate the iconic setting of Marlon Brando’s Home Office in the original film. He finally settled on the Presidential Suite at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel after the Hotel Manager made him an offer that he could not refuse.

    Then, Kamran selected a Red Camera to recreate the lighting design of the classic film with only one kino light.

    Finally, Kamran color corrected the short film utilizing DaVinci Resolve in a manner that harkens back to old world charm. The final look is ‘to die for.’
