Cinematography Prizes: Asc and Oscar

11 January 2017 4:50 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The American Society of Cinematographers recently added an very welcome category called "Spotlight" in which they note the work of DPs working in films with either very limited releases or festival only entries. It's a smart way to draw attention to work that might otherwise go unnoticed. In this new category they've nominated Lol Crawley for Childhood of a Leader (which we recently discussed), Gorka Gomez Andreu's work on the Georgian Oscar submission House of Others, Ernesto Pardo for the Mexican film Tempestad, and Juliette van Dormael's lensing of the Belgian film Mon Ange (My Angel). Why there are only 4 honorees and not the traditional 5 we do not know.

But the marquee category is of course Theatrical Motion Pictures. And here's the beauties they most loved looking at this year...

Sean Porter D.P || 20th Century Women || Interview

10 January 2017 2:36 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

I got to talk with Director Of Photography Sean Porter, a second time, in regards to his latest film 20th Century Women. You may know his work from Eden, Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, The Trust, and/or Green Room, but I'd be impressed if you spotted an obvious throughline in his ouevre. Watching 20th Century Women I was unaware he had shot it til the credits rolled. As a cinematographer who hopes to adapt/evolve entirely to the given material, he surely takes that news as a compliment of the highest form. 

Sean Porter photographed two of my favorite films of 2016. Released first was Green Room, a brutal siege horror exercise, which we talked about earlier in the year, and the other is 20th Century Women, which, during comparison, he describes as “a coming of age, sun-drenched, family dramedy”. They could not be more different. Although, in terms of his approach to exposure, »

Watch the Year’s Most-Celebrated Cinematographers Discuss Their Craft in One-Hour Talk

9 January 2017 10:07 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

What’s preferable to actors talking about how much the awards-ready role meant to them, how much it changed them as a person, and how great the person they’ve been forced to compete against really is? Everything under the sun, actually, but specifically its precise alternative: a seasonal roundtable of technicians chewing the fat over their recent work and why they do this.

Here, then, is THR’s collection of recently fêted cinematographers: Bradford Young (Arrival), John Toll (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), Charlotte Bruus Christensen (Fences), Caleb Deschanel (Rules Don’t Apply), Rodrigo Prieto (Silence), and Linus Sandgren (La La Land). If you like what’s here and want some more, be sure to read my recent (or recent-ish) interviews with Young and Toll.

How ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ and ‘Hell or High Water’ Could Find Oscar Success With Male Voters

4 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When it comes to the Academy Awards, voters tend to think highbrow. They like to represent the best, most humane, classiest version of themselves.

But don’t forget the Steak Eaters.

The Academy is full of them. They’re red-blooded males (not just American) — often directors, writers, and craftspeople. They’re the guys who voted for Oscar-winners “Argo,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Braveheart,” “Gladiator,” “Avatar,” and yes, “Crash” over “Brokeback Mountain.”

“They vote for big movies that make big money, good solid moviemaking with great actors and good storytelling,” one veteran Oscar campaigner told me. In recent years, this faction of the Academy voted for mainstream hits such as Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and A.G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant.”

This year, several movies could get a boost from the Steak Eater vote. »

Watch: Behind-the-Scenes VFX Show Reel for 'Arrival' by Oblique FX

4 January 2017 12:22 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of our favorite movies of 2016 is Arrival, the science fiction thriller from Denis Villeneuve. Aside from a brilliant script by Eric Heisserer, the film contains stunning visuals, in part thanks to cinematographer Bradford Young, but also thanks to some excellent VFX work. For anyone curious to see how they brought everything to life, including the giant spaceship and their activity inside of it, Oblique FX has released a demo reel highlighting their work. Another VFX company, called RodeoFX, has also launched a page with photos showing before-after shots. It's amazing to see how much of this was filmed with blue screen, yet it feels so real. Seriously impressive. Always so cool to see these kind of VFX breakdowns for big sci-fi movies. Here's the new VFX breakdown show reel from Oblique FX for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival - from Vimeo: To see more behind-the-scenes VFX work, visit the project »

M. David Mullen Asc || The Love Witch

4 January 2017 9:03 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Love Witch has promptly become requisite sustenance for cinephiles. As the obligatory end of the year lists come churning out, you’d be damned if you didn’t catch The Love Witch on most of them. It’s made the Best of 2016 lists of  the New Yorker, Timeout, L.A Weekly, Sheila O’Malley (of rogerebert.com), Rottentomatoes 100 Best Horror Films of All Time, The Rolling Stones Best Horror Films of 2016,  The Thrillist’s sexiest movies of 2016, Filmschoolrejects Best movie Fashion/Best Movies of 2016, and Business Insider’s 24 Best Movies you probably haven’t seen this year, etc…. etc...

The Love Witch looks like film’s just aren’t able to anymore. It’s a glammed up homage to its Vistavision/Technicolor idols -- its flawless aesthetic is pivotal and helps ascend the label of a love letter. I talked with, and learned much, from its veteran cinematographer M. David Mullen »

Watch: ‘Arrival’ VFX Reel Breaks Down Denis Villeneuve’s Sci-Fi Drama

4 January 2017 8:41 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“It’s never easy when you have visual effects-heavy films, because every human being has their own artistic preference, taste,” Arrival cinematographer Bradford Young recently told us. “This is a collaborative process — everybody comes in with their notions of what is and what isn’t — so it requires a lot of compromise. But what it also does is require all of us to be on the same page in terms of what this film has to look like, what is has to feel like, so it’s a big tug of war. It’s a healthy tug of war because, ultimately, you end up getting what you want. I think, with this film, what I really respect about it is that the visual effects are anchored in a real, honest appeal to show humanity in the foreground in a very particular way.”

Indeed, the “tug of war” resulted in one »
