Cinematographer Wally Pfister Talks “The Dark Knight Rises”

1 February 2011 8:29 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In 1998, Wally Pfister shot The Hi-Line in Montana in the dead of winter on a $300,000 budget. It got him into the competition at Sundance Film Festival and while the film is all but forgoten, it was there, that he met Christopher Nolan who asked him to be his D.O.P. in the neo-noir thriller Memento (2000). The success of this collaboration resulted in Pfister taking over as Director of Photography for Nolan’s subsequent films: Insomnia (2002), Batman Begins (2005), The Prestige (2006), The Dark Knight (2008), which he partially shot with IMAX cameras, and Inception, which was shot partially in 5-perf 65mm. As of 2010, Pfister is the only cinematographer that Christopher Nolan has worked with except Following (1998), on which Nolan himself acted as cinematographer. So it’s no surprise that the four time Academy Award nominee will be returning to work with Nolan in the upcoming Batman movie.
