ERIC KRESS LIGHTING WORKSHOP

My series of blog posts about Eric Kress‘ Lighting Workshop on the ASC web site have been very popular.

Eric Kress was the cinematographer of the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I am preparing part 4 in the next 2 weeks…

The workshop was held at Gothenburg Film Studios during Gokinema, in collaboration with co-producer Michael Petersen, and with the support of Marc Galerne of K5600 Lighting & Jacques Delacoux of Transvideo.

There are 4 posts in the series.

 

     
Gravity article by Benjamin B

GRAVITY article is online

My in-depth article for American Cinematographer about this landmark film is online which has earned many best cinematography awards including: the OSCAR, BAFTA and ASC.

Emmanuel Lubezki's work on Gravity is a paradigm of the expanded role of the cinematographer in films with high virtual content.
We are entering an era that includes virtual cinematography in the DP's job.

The article is based on interviews I did with:

- cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki
- director Alfonso Cuaron
- gaffer John Higgins
- visual fx supervisor Tim Webber
- colorist Steven J Scott
- Technicolor senior producer Michael Dillon
- Framestore senior vfx producer Charles Howell
- Framestore CG lighting supervisor Paul Beilby
