  1. Congratulations Jarin! Sorry we missed each other last night!
  2. It’s the rear element of the 35mm lens that wasn’t designed to cover large sensors. The real question is where your frame lines are and is the vignette outside of those? The vignette will change as you zoom due to the zoom curve. G
  3. And it continues! Congratulations to my dear friend and work partner for the past 12 years, Geoff Haley, SOC for receiving the Society of Camera Opererators Best Achievement in Camera Operating (feature film) for his work on JOKER. So well deserved for the unique qualities he brings to the set. The gala was held last night in Hollywood. Now it’s onto the ASC Awards and then on to to Oscars! I’m so humbled. G
  4. You know, I just realized that it’s also the same story as Apocalypse Now, only on foot with a different message being delivered in a different war. G
  5. I will say that I immensely enjoyed 1917. I was emotionally exhausted at its end. Having said this, I feel like I’ve already seen the continuous shot gimmick on BIRDMAN. Nothing new here. Not best picture in my opinion because it wasn’t fresh enough but what a story!
  6. I believe that is something that should be done at Panavision. G
  7. Congratulations Jarin! Will you be at the ASC Awards? If so, I’d like to shake your hand. G
  8. 1917 is a wonderful achievement but it’s not Best Picture. The Irishman is a much better choice for the overall filmmaking in my opinion. 1917 will probably win though. G
  9. Interesting enough, this is a famous, historic photo of a 1st AC! 😂
  10. Actually Richard, yes. I’ve worked for the Hollywood studios all over the world and have always been under the IA contract with US based payroll. Numerous times in Canada alone and including Russia. G
  11. I want to wish my good friend and colleague, Larry Sher, for his ASC nomination for JOKER. I’m very proud of him and the company he shares with the other nominees including Roger, Rodrigo, Phedon and Bob. Good luck my friend!!! G
  12. Thank you Tom for recognizing our contribution to the filmmaking process! An excerpt from his Golden Globes acceptance speech: “And this is a thing that happens with actors at some point on a movie. A movie is made shot by shot, everybody knows that. Lina Wertmüller knows it, Marty Scorsese knows it, Jackie Chan knows that a movie is made shot by shot, and at that moment, what is required is everybody has to do their job to their perfection... Sometimes, it's the focus puller that if this isn't sharp, you don't have it, and it shows up, and you have to do it all over again. But it's those moments as an actor where everybody I have ever worked with has helped me get to that place.” I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Hanks on THE GREEN MILE and he was a true pleasure. G
  13. I love ya Richard but you’re comments continuously prove the case for having a union. G
