Roger Deakins will shoot Denis Villeneuve's 'Blade Runner' sequel

20 May 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oh wow. So cinematographer Roger Deakins has signed on to shoot Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner" sequel. I'm paying attention now, folks. Seriously, this whole project has been filed under "whatever" for me for the longest time. But then I have a dirty little secret that I suspect is shared by more than a few who just don't want to get into it: I've never agreed with the legions who think Ridley Scott's original film is an indispensable work of modern art. But…not going to get into it. I've mainly just been snoozing at the prospect of revisiting the material because of your standard grade reboot/sequel-itis. However, when Denis Villeneuve joined up, I got a little excited. This isn't some run-of-the-mill action director sure to lumber his way through the thing. Villeneuve is a pretty intriguing new voice. I didn't love the scripts for "Incendies" or "Prisoners, »

Roger Deakins: The Ten Best Cinematographers working today

14 April 2015 8:18 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s time for a new weekly series folks! Yes, starting today I want to try a new series on for size. Much like how I looked at the best winners in almost every Academy Award field, I want to now turn my attention towards individuals (specifically those active in the field), starting with cinematographers. Basically, this first one will look at the best Directors of Photography currently working in the business. There’s tons of amazing Dp’s in the industry so this is clearly going to be a divisive list. Still, that’s part of the fun of it as well! Hopefully you all enjoy and this becomes a weekly or at least monthly series… Before I get to the list, I’m going to quickly explain what will be happening below. In short, I’ll be listing ten Dp’s/cinematographers that I think are the best in the business right now. »

Cinematographers pick the best-shot films of all time

4 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stumbling across that list of best-edited films yesterday had me assuming that there might be other nuggets like that out there, and sure enough, there is American Cinematographer's poll of the American Society of Cinematographers membership for the best-shot films ever, which I do recall hearing about at the time. But they did things a little differently. Basically, in 1998, cinematographers were asked for their top picks in two eras: films from 1894-1949 (or the dawn of cinema through the classic era), and then 1950-1997, for a top 50 in each case. Then they followed up 10 years later with another poll focused on the films between 1998 and 2008. Unlike the editors' list, though, ties run absolutely rampant here and allow for way more than 50 films in each era to be cited. I'd love to see what these lists would look like combined, however. I imagine "Citizen Kane," which was on top of the 1894-1949 list, »

The Best Movie Animal Performances of 2014

14 January 2015 9:45 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I was watching Gone Girl for the fourth time and admiring how David Fincher (and his cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth) majestically shot Ben Affleck‘s character Nick Dunne’s cat and I began to wonder about the cat’s true role in the story. The cat is featured too prominently to be just a background prop. What did the cat mean? As I […]

2015 American Society of Cinematographers Nominations Announced

7 January 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last year a tie resulted in seven nominees instead of five, but this year the American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) deliver five nominees for their 2015 award for the best cinematography in 2014's features. Among the nominees are the expected in Emmanuel Lubezki for Birdman and Dick Pope for his painterly Mr. Turner, but from there I can't say I was certain any one of these DPs would be nominated. Oscar Faura's work on The Imitation Game was impressive for the way it stuck strictly with Benedict Cumberbatch's perspective as Alan Turing and I love seeing Robert D. Yeoman getting some recognition for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, but I have to say, I can't support the Roger Deakins nomination for his work on Angelina Jolie's Unbroken as pretty as some moments may be and as raw as the several torture scenes may be, I just »

'Gone Girl' Dp Jeff Cronenweth Makes Bold Moves for David Fincher

7 January 2015 8:18 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth agrees that "Gone Girl" is lighter in tone than his three previous films with David Fincher but no less psychologically complex. In fact, the marriage made in hell for Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike is really three movies in one: his story, her story and the third-person police procedural. And weather factors in visually for Cronenweth with this "Punch and Judy" show. Manhattan is warm and romantic and Missouri is cold and oppressive, as their relationship spirals out of control. Cronenweth, therefore, adjusts color palettes, lenses and filters to infiltrate their emotional highs and lows and volatile states of mind. "The romance and energy and success in New York is obviously the counterpart and setup for their demise, which happens in the Midwest, where she is out of her comfort zone," says Cronenweth, the two-time Oscar nominee for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Social. »

Industry cinematographers weigh in on film vs. digital

2 January 2015 12:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The on-going film vs. digital debate seemed to reach a bit of a fever pitch in 2014. A lot of that had to do with the fight by filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan to maintain Kodak's production of film stock. It was a fight they won in August, while the industry at large would surely prefer to march headlong into the (more affordable) future of ones and zeroes. But this "debate" has remained a somewhat nuanced one, even as the separate passionate sides have presented it as cut and dried. Archivally, with the expanded shelf life of celluloid and in the face of file type obsolescence, maintaining the production of film stock is absolutely crucial. Aesthetically, it will always come down to preference, of course. But beyond even that, digital encroachment has meant more opportunity for young artists to break into the form, and that's the position »
