‘Westworld’ Dp Paul Cameron: A Camera Is Just Another Film Stock

18 November 2016 1:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — When Dp Paul Cameron met with “Westworld” co-creator Jonathan Nolan to audition for the role of cinematographer on HBO’s new hit series, he asked whether it would be possible to shoot on 35mm film. “Jonathan said, ‘yes, absolutely we can,’” Cameron recalls.

For a seasoned Dp who has shot on multiple formats, why was film so important on this particular project? “I was thinking about the sweeping Western landscapes,” Cameron says. “When I read the pilot, for me the references were to the films shot by John Ford in Monument Valley, Utah.”

Westworld,” a contender in the First Look — TV Pilots Competition at the Camerimage film festival, is a sci-fi-like Western with head-spinning twists created by Nolan (brother of director Christopher Nolan) and his wife Lisa Joy, based on the 1973 film of the same name, written and directed by novelist Michael Crichton.

Dante Spinotti on Technology, New Workflow, Directors’ Personalities

18 November 2016 1:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — Dante Spinotti, who served as a jurist on this year’s Cinematographers’ Debuts Competition at the Camerimage film festival, is a firm believer that changing technology benefits filmmaking at all levels.

The Italian-born Dp, who has credits that go back to the 1970s, says that the advent of digital tools has democratized entry into the profession as small, inexpensive, and easily available cameras have made it possible for anyone to create moving images.

But if technology is more plentiful, talent is not. “What has not changed is that good ideas are just as difficult as they’ve always been. Anyone can push a button, but what’s important is what’s inside their heads.”

Spinotti’s enthusiasm for digital extends all the way from production through exhibition.

For example, he welcomes the presence of on-set monitors and how directors and crew today can view and evaluate material immediately after shooting it. »

Strength of Polish Cinema Reflected at Camerimage Film Festival

18 November 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — The 2016 crop of Polish features is one of the most robust in years, say industryites and critics, something confirmed by the international interest in several of the eight films competing in the local section of Poland’s Camerimage film festival.

“Last Family,” a directorial debut from Jan Matuszynski chronicling the real-life story of a seemingly doomed clan of pre-1989 Polish media stars who surf the waters of a fledgling democracy from their cramped, concrete tower apartment, is one of the country’s hottest HBO Europe properties currently.

Its chillingly accurate scene design, painstakingly true to life behind the Iron Curtain in the ‘80s and ‘90s in every detail, provides a setting that makes the chronicle of the Beksinski family feel almost hyper-realistic.

Cinematographer Kacper Fertacz says the film’s unique visual ethos was no accident.

“In ‘Last Family’ we wanted to reduce film language to a minimum — every »

Bring on the Holodeck! Here’s the Top 7 Vr Insights from the Ves Summit

31 October 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

October 29 was the eighth annual Ves Summit (at the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills), where Visual Effects Society members discuss the tech and business elements of their craft — but this year, the obsession was virtual. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality dominated the discussions, including two panels: “Cinematography and VFX: What Constitutes ‘Real’?” and “Visual Effects in the Wild.” However, at Ves, the untamed landscape was the one between our ears. Here’s our top takeaways.

Expect your amusement park attractions to become increasingly virtual. Sam Richards, visual effects design manager at Walt Disney Imagineering, said they’re trying to figure out how to put Vr into an attraction, given the cost of headgear, and are currently experimenting with pre-show usage.

Shooting Film Against the Digital Wave: Dp Paul Cameron on Westworld

3 October 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Considering cinematographer Paul Cameron is responsible for a portion of the seminal digital photography in Michael Mann’s Collateral, one might assume Cameron is a proselytizer of the digital revolution. Not so — Cameron remains an ardent devotee of celluloid, extolling its virtues as an “elegant, eloquent” medium. With the blessing of series co-creator Jonathan Nolan, Cameron sped film through the gate on the HBO pilot for Westworld. An extension of Michael Crichton’s taut 1973 sci-fi thriller about an Old West theme park where “guests” indulge their baser desires through interactions with robot “hosts,” this new Westworld digs its spurs into […] »

How HBO’s ‘Westworld’ Shot on Film for a More Tactile, Organic Look

30 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There was never any question that Jonathan Nolan was going to shoot the pilot for HBO’s “Westworld” on 35mm film. The funny thing is, Paul Cameron, the cinematographer (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”), didn’t realize it until he first approached Nolan with the same idea.

“Jonathan told me that had already made up his mind about film,” Cameron told IndieWire. “It made perfect sense for what we were going for, which was a very sophisticated, minimalist approach. We wanted the western town to feel classy and elegant.
