Personal Quote:

Alexander [Payne] said he wanted the actors [in Nebraska (2013)] to play with the frame where we show them in a single shot. We'd show how small and lost they are in this world and the loneliness and isolation - all these themes we have in this film: the lack of communication. When people talk they rarely have eye contact, they stare at the TV. See more »

Trivia:

Papamichael credits the cinematography of Godard's Contempt as specifically inspiring his career as a cameraman. See more »
