The new ASC Press publication Cinematographer Style, Volume 1, features full transcripts of 55 of the interviews conducted for the documentary (Vol. 2 is currently in the works). The pages are packed with advice, anecdotes, lessons and history.
Cinematographer Style creates a collective narrative about the art and craft of filmmaking. The interviewees discuss their backgrounds, their dreams and struggles and, most importantly, the passion they have for their craft.
This book contains 55 of the 110 interviews The lesson from these interviews, conducted between 2003 and 2005 for the feature-length documentary Cinematographer Style, is that there is no textbook for cinematography: it is an art, like painting, writing or composing, no two artists express themselves in exactly the same way. The cinematographers are:
