Overview

By using photography as a storytelling medium, the cinematographer plays a key role in translating a screenplay into images and capturing the director's vision of a film. This volume presents in-depth interviews with 13 prominent cinematographers, who discuss their careers and the art and craft of feature film cinematography. The interviewees--who represent the spectrum of big-budget Hollywood and low-budget independent filmmaking from the sixties through the nineties--talk about their responsibilities, including lighting, camera movement, equipment, cinematic grammar, lenses, film stocks, interpreting the script, the budget and schedule, and the psychological effect of images. Each interview is preceded by a short biography and a selected filmography, which provide the background for a detailed analysis of the photographic style and technique of many highly acclaimed and seminal films.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Interviews with 13 cinematographers allow them to speak in their own words about the art and craft of cinematography. Interviews were conducted over a five-year period, and represent a wide spectrum of artistic and technical accomplishments which embody cinematography in commercial and independent filmmaking. The order in which interviews are presented gives a historical, developmental perspective of the field. Individual selected filmographies contain the majority of the subjects' feature film credits. Includes a glossary. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
