(YES MUST WATCH) Through the Lens with Gordon Willis, Cinematographer > CRAFT TRUCK (32:18)

Posted by CraftTruck on April 4, 2013 • 

 

"Gordon Willis is regarded by all of his peers as one of the greatest cinematographers in the history of film, and for many as the greatest of all time, period. Between lensing The Godfather trilogy, many of Woody Allen's best films (including Annie Hall, Manhattan, Stardust Memories, Interiors, and others) and several master thrillers for Alan J. Pakula (All the President's Men, Klute, The Parallax View, The Devil's own, and others), Gordon Willis practically single-handedly re-invented the craft of cinematography and the nature by which films were and are composed, lit, and executed. He has left an indelible mark on the craft of filmmaking and we are delighted to present him in a two part interview here. We hope you enjoy a small window into a great man's achievements and approach."

Mark Vargo, ASC shares some light meter tips (11:28)

Posted by evanerichards on March 12, 2013 • 

 

"Last year I posted an interview with Mark Vargo, ASC. He has had a very successful career working in both cinematography and visual effects.


He recently posted an educational light metering video to vimeo. In it he explains how to meter and expose using an incident meter or a spot meter and talks about their usefulness in different situations.

 

If you don’t know anything about light meters this is a great introduction and even if you use them often this is a great review."

Training Your Eye - Lighting for Cinematographers. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (6 Videos)

Training Your Eye - Lighting for Cinematographers. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (6 Videos) | Film & Cinema | Scoop.it

"Many of you have heard me talk about how I light to eye by either looking at the back LCD screen or a  lighting monitor like an HP DreamColor. Lighting to eye is something that is based on experience and what you like esthetically. I trained my eye through the use of exposing film, not an LCD screen or a monitor, but a photo-chemical process and by the use of a light meter. Many say that the light meter is dead with digital. I disagree. It is the only tool that you have in your box that can measure what you love. It can tell you how you lit a specific scene in case you have to go back and pick something up later in your schedule. You will need that tool to measure footcandles and f-stops to guide you to make the match perfect."
