B&H Prospectives: Russell Carpenter, ASC07/10/2017
In this B&H Prospectives video, we catch up with Academy Award-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter, ASC, who describes his philosophy, breaks down his process and shares some indelible filmmaking experiences, along with valuable wisdom for creatives in all disciplines. As the guardian of the director’s intent, Carpenter talks about how he wears at least four hats on set, as a storyteller, a technician, a manager of time and resources, and a politician—especially when things aren’t going the way one might have hoped. From pre-production through post, and even continuing until just before the film is released, Carpenter offers insight into the cinematographer’s role in bringing a director’s vision to life.
Fascinating stuff, thank you for an amazing short interview with a master.
