26 August 2017 8:47 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Shooting the Mr. Robot pilot and the bulk of Stranger Things—projects he’s shared with fellow nominee Tod Campbell—cinematographer Tim Ives has received his first Emmy nomination for his work on the Duffer Brothers’ blockbuster Netflix drama. Looking at reference materials for Stranger Things, Ives found a project that spoke to his own sensibilities and the Amblin classics he loves. While it’s common for fans to latch on strongly to actors and the characters they play, it… »

22 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Splitting his time of late between two of television’s most visually stunning dramas, Mr. Robot and Stranger Things, cinematographer Tod Campbell earned his first Emmy nomination this year for his work on the former series. Based in the experience of New York hacker Elliot Alderson—who suffers from a dissociative disorder—Mr. Robot and its shadowed, nightmarish world lend themselves to delicious low lighting and great feats of visual imagination.

‘Westworld,’ ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Stranger Things’ Battle for Cinematography Emmy

14 August 2017 5:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year’s one-hour series Emmy contenders for cinematography are marked by some bold sci-fi and dystopian disruptors: “Westworld,” “Stranger Things,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Man in the High Castle” (last year’s winner), “Mr. Robot, and Sense8.”  With dazzling visuals, they explored the impact of tyranny and hate, of societies turned upside down, struggling for a greater humanity.

That leaves “The Crown” as the lone historical drama. But it too was a disruptor of sorts in the way that it showcased the symbiotic relationship between the monarchy and Parliament in post-war Great Britain, steered by the young Queen Elizabeth (nominated Claire Foy) and the old warhorse, Winston Churchill (nominated John Lithgow).

But don’t be surprised if it comes down to a race between the dueling dystopias: “Westworld” and “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The ‘Mr. Robot’ Experiment: Can a TV Show Be Shot Like an Indie Film?

31 May 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Although the argument of TV vs. film primacy has moved to the point of psychic exhaustion, “cinematic” remains the #1 adjective used in every Emmy pitch. The highest praise that can be accorded small-screen stories is when a creator’s vision is expressed in visual language… that evokes a movie.

However, what so often gets lost in all this sound and fury is, no matter the budget, it’s the film and TV production processes that shape the final product. For the creative team behind “Mr. Robot,” they wanted to find a path that would give them the aesthetics that can only come with expansive planning, while maintaining much of the run-and-gun pace TV production demands.

Holy Overkill! Are there Six ‘Batman’ Films Planned for 2019?

11 April 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

All six are on the slate but not all scheduled.Courtesy DC

Update: This one’s been seemingly debunked by Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, two guys who would definitely know. Dig the tweet chain below. But regardless of when the films are being released, they are still all in various stages of production, so you’re getting them, the question is just when. Thanks to Adam Hlavac for politely correcting me.

Hey @geoffjohns why didn't you tell me we were releasing 4 Batman movies in 2019? Can we increase that to 10?

 — @thejonberg

In 2019, Batman will celebrate his 80th year of costumed crimefighting, and if you believe rumors started on the Reddit Dceu board (and as reported by Screen Rant), Warner Bros. is gonna do it up big, like, six films big.

According to the report, all four live-action Batfilms currently in development — The Batman, Gotham City Sirens, Nightwing, and Batgirl — will all drop in 2019, along with two animated »

ASC Awards 2017: ‘Lion’ Steals ‘La La Land’s’ Thunder

5 February 2017 12:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While Damien Chazelle predictably took the DGA Award for “La La Land” on Saturday night, the ASC rejected the self-reverential Hollywood musical in favor of the more dramatic and politically impactful “Lion,” honoring Australian cinematographer Greig Fraser. “Lion” director Garth Davis took home Best First Director at the DGAs.

However, “La La Land’s” cinematographer, Linus Sandgren, still remains the Oscar favorite, despite the fact that, in the last 20 years, the ASC winner has taken the Academy Award 11 times.

With “Lion,” the incredibly true story of Saroo Brierley (Dev Patel), the Indian who used Google Earth to locate his birth family several decades after his separation and adoption in Australia, Fraser essentially made two movies in one. Fortunately, the top Camerimage prize winner had previous experience shooting in India.
