Twin Peaks, Ep. 1.07, “Realization Time” hypnotically ties narratives and cherry stems together

12 December 2014 12:54 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Twin Peaks, Season 1, Episode 7, “Realization Time”

Written by Harley Peyton

Directed by Caleb Deschanel

Aired May 17, 1990 on ABC

“What’s up, Doc? Just a few words before I go to sleep. I feel like I’m going to dream tonight. Big bad ones, you know? The kind you like. It’s easier talking into the recorder. I guess I feel I can say anything. All my secrets. The naked ones. I know you like those, Doc. I know you like me too. That’ll be my little secret, okay? Just like your coconut. Why is it so easy to make men like me? And I don’t even have to try very hard. Maybe, if it was harder…” — Laura Palmer

With the sheer breadth of stories being told on an average episode of Twin Peaks, it’s startling to take a step back and realize that each episode only covers a period of 24 hours. »

Oscar-Nominated Cameraman Caleb Deschanel on Raising His Famous Actress Daughters

28 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Balancing life and work has been a constant struggle for cinematographer and five-time Oscar nominee Caleb Deschanel. In between lensing such blockbusters as The Right Stuff, The Natural and The Passion of the Christ, Deschanel managed to maintain his Hollywood marriage – 42 years and counting – to actress Mary Jo Deschanel and to raise two overachieving children: Emily Deschanel, star of Fox's long-running procedural Bones, and Zooey Deschanel, the face of New Girl, another Fox primetime hit. Deschanel received a lifetime achievement award at the Camerimage Festival in Poland this month and sat down with THR to

Leviathan Wins Best Film At CamerImage

25 November 2014 1:15 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Poland's CamerImage, a film festival that runs each year in Bydgoszcz, is dedicated in large measure to celebrating the art of cinematography. With that craft in mind, it's perhaps no surprise that LeviathanAndrey Zvyagintsev's austere and striking parable of modern Russia, took home this year's big prize: the Golden Frog. Its Dp, Mikhail Krichman, also won for his cinematography. The film is Russia’s official bid for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. CamerImage 22 officially closed on with a lavish awards ceremony in the main theater of Bydgoszcz’s imposing Opera Nova opera house. Golden Frogs were bestowed on The Black Stallion and The Natural's Caleb Deschanel, who picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award (click here to see Breaking Bad Dp Michael Slovis explain why), The Right Stuff's Philip Kaufman, who won the corresponding award for direction, and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader, Trash) for Excellence in Directing. »

Polish Filmmaking Has the Right Stuff, Cinematographer Caleb Deschanel Says

21 November 2014 6:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Polish filmmakers are punching above their weight, according to six-times Oscar-nominated cinematographer Caleb Deschanel, who heads the jury weighing six of Poland’s most visually engaging pics at the Camerimage film festival this week in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

The films in the Polish competition, ranging from a tale of alcoholic obsession in “Hardkor Disko” to the story of a real-life Cold War superspy, “Jack Strong,” show impressive camera mastery, says Deschanel, whose credits include “The Right Stuff,” “The Natural” and “The Patriot.”

One likely reason is that filmmakers now have far wider digital access to great films that inspire and inform them, he says.

“I’ve really noticed over the last couple of years there’s been this extraordinary explosion of talent of young cinematographers throughout the world. I think the availability of films that could be studied — the access to all the information and about how things are shot — has really made that possible, »

‘Right Stuff’ Helmer Philip Kaufman to Tune Into More TV

16 November 2014 10:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — Philip Kaufman, whose “Hemingway & Gellhorn” marked the veteran helmer/scribe’s entree into both the small-screen world and digital production in 2012, says he’s planning to delve further into the new Golden Age of television.

Kaufman is receiving Camerimage’s lifetime achievement kudo alongside longtime collaborator Caleb Deschanel, whose lensing is feted in a tribute. Their work together on “The Right Stuff,” for which special lighting rigs were created to convey the right look for Ed Harris’ Mercury 7 space capsule, taught Kaufman that a critical quality in a cinematographer is — aside from “that impeccable eye” — inventiveness.

At 76, the visionary behind “The Right Stuff,” “The Wanderers” and “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” has no plans to retire, he explains, adding that he’s looking to launch another project with Clive Owen after witnessing his turn as Ernest Hemingway in the sprawling Spanish Civil War-set HBO film.

London — Writer-director Philip Kaufman, whose credits include “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “The Right Stuff,” will receive a lifetime achievement award for directing at Camerimage, a film festival that celebrates the art of cinematography.

The award recognizes filmmakers who have “changed the way movies are made with their creativity, visual skills and passion for their craft,” the fest said. “Kaufman is an artist who is not afraid to supplement genre features with deeper analyses of the human condition,” it added.

His first screenplay and directorial debut was the comedy “Goldstein,” which shared the Cannes Film Festival Prix de la Nouvelle Critique with Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Prima Della Rivoluzione” in 1964.

Next up was comedy “Fearless Frank,” which featured a comic-book hero played by Jon Voight, and revisionist Western “The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid,” starring Robert Duvall as Jesse James.

Drama “The White Dawn” marked Kaufman’s first collaboration with the cinematographer Michael Chapman. »
