Every Frame A Rembrandt: Art and Practice of Cinematography

by Andrew Laszlo, ASC

Using five very different films, Southern Comfort, The Warriors, First Blood, Streets of Fire, and Innerspace, Andrew Laszlo discusses the specific challenges encountered in each. The author shows the broad range of complexity in motion picture photography, form its relatively simple "point and shoot" in a typical day location photography to complex in-camera effects. Lazslo’s "war-stories" depict the day-to-day activities of a cinematographer before, during and after filming the project. He discusses equipment, film stocks, testing labs, unions, agents, budget requirements, and working with the director, producer and crews.

Every Frame a Rembrandt is an expression heard on sound stages and locations the world over. While in most cases the expression is used lightly and not infrequently with a certain amount of sarcasm, its true meaning speaks highly of the cinematographer’s commitment to producing the best, most interesting, unusual and memorable images on screen.

The contents are as follows: Foreword by John Mason Preface by Andrew Quicke, Southern Comfort, The Warriors, First Blood, Streets of Fire, Innerspace and the filmography of Andrew Laszlo, ASC.
