Book Description

30 May 1999
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 the film. This text presents interviews with 13 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 films.

I highly recommend this fine book. The author's roots can be traced back to Camp Willoway. I can still remember his early films that he showed to us campers. One that still sticks out in my mind is where you see a guy who is being followed/stalked and he is desperately trying to get away. From who you ask ?.....the camera....it was quite clever. Though the author was not my counselor, he was a kind, thoughtful , creative guy whose films left an impression that still remains. Best of luck!
