Visions of Light
There are so many different things to keep in mind when you are putting together a film. For beginning filmmakers, this is especially stressful. One thing that consistently seems to take a backseat is CINEMATOGRAPHY.
Visions of Light is a documentary that examines an often overlooked element of filmmaking: the role of cinematography. It includes interviews with various cinematographers, credited as “directors of photography,” who discuss clips from their own work as well as films that inspired them. They pay homage to pioneering cinematographers and to more than 100 films. The film considers how the cinematographer’s job has changed over the years, with the advent of new technology and the development of the art of filmmaking.
This film is definitely worth watching if you are interested in filmmaking.
