Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski and Make-Up Designer Lois Burwell Talk Lincoln and Collaborating with Steven Speilberg and Daniel Day-Lewis

27 November 2012 8:29 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In Lincoln, as the Civil War neared its conclusion in early 1865, newly re-elected President Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis, in a truly remarkable, award-worthy performance) was determined to unite Congress in passing a Constitutional amendment to abolish slavery.  Facing fierce pro-slavery opposition, Lincoln employed strategy, persuasion and political muscle to get a swift and decisive victory before the impeding Confederate surrender, so as not to risk losing the opportunity to end slavery. At the film’s press day, I had the opportunity to speak with Academy Award winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski and make-up designer Lois Burwell, whose contributions to the film make a huge impact to the overall mood and feel of the story, for this exclusive interview for Collider, in which they talked about what they enjoy about their collaboration with such a consummate storyteller as Steven Spielberg, the importance of developing a shorthand with the director you’re working with, »

Watch: Lois Burwell on turning Daniel Day-Lewis into 'Lincoln'

25 November 2012 6:24 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Audiences enthralled by Daniel Day-Lewis' transformative performance as Abraham Lincoln in "Lincoln" must give credit to makeup artist Lois Burwell. An Oscar winner for "Braveheart" (1995) and nominee for "Saving Private Ryan" (1998), Burwell's makeup not only makes a believable Lincoln out of Day-Lewis, but also makes believable nineteenth century Americans out of every actor in the film. Through a subtle progression, Burwell is able to convey the tremendous toll the Civil War takes on Lincoln, so that when someone tells him he has aged ten years, we believe it.  "Lincoln" marks Burwell's fifth collaboration with Steven Spielberg: they previously worked together on "Saving Private Ryan," "Catch Me If You Can" (2002), "War of the Worlds" (2005), and "War Horse" (2011). She is a likely contender this year for her third nomination. Burwell spoke with Gold Derby about her work »
