In the past two decades a whole new generation of cinematographers has emerged on the international film scene. Often using spare and original lighting and camera techniques that would have horrified oldtime Hollywood, directors of photography have made a public mark on the film-making process that was all but un-thinkable in earler years. No other volume of in-depth conversations with the generation of cinematographers is available to students and moviegoers. These interviews are rich in practical detail as well as stimulating discussions of aesthetic issues. Thus, reading this book is like taking a class from fifteen top cameramen. Taken together, the conversations in this book reveal the remarkable range of creativity and dedication demanded of the visual artist in feature filmmaking today." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index ISBN: 0520053362 Donation: donated by the family of Wayne Levy, 2006 Contents: -- introduction -- Nestor Almendros -- John Alonzo -- John Bailey -- Bill Butler -- Michael Chapman -- Bill Draker -- Conrad Hall -- Laszlo Kovacs -- Owen Roizman -- Vittorio Storaro -- Mario Tosi -- Haskell Wexler -- Billy Williams -- Gordon Willis -- Vilmos Zsigmond -- glossary -- index -- More info
