  1. Probably best remembered as the second unit Director/DP on several James Bond films from 1981 onwards and many other action features. https://bscine.com/news
  2. The Academy has announced that the Oscar for Best Cinematography (and Editing) won't be shown live but awarded during a commercial break and this was announced by John Bailey ASC! Good move though, after all it's not as if either craft is really that important in the film making process.🤔
  3. They have been. The whole series of 'Little House' is available on Blu-ray, but only on Region 1. I've seen the trailers and they do look very impressive.
  4. Storm Thorgerson. He designed the cover for Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon and directed the films shown as back projection at Floyd gigs for years.
  5. Here's an excellent interview with Rob Hardy from British Cinematographer magazine about MI:Fallout. https://britishcinematographer.co.uk/rob-hardy-bsc-mission-impossible-fallout/
  6. Ronnie Taylor BSC, has died at the age of 93. He won the Oscar for his work on Gandhi,( shared with original cinematographer Billy Williams BSC), he had taken over when Williams had become ill, although the majority of the work was Williams'and worked with Richard Attenborough on many of his projects as operator and then DOP. https://bscine.com/news?id=275
  7. Hey Guys, Just to save my embarrassment, I was trying to be light hearted about hand holding that camera, but come to think of it, with 3 or 4 big grips to assist I'm sure some old style operator would have given it a go!
  8. Hi Guys, Thanks for the responses and info.I notice the wide angle shots in Patton (which Shaffner and Koenekampe seemed to favour as I remember some in Papillon too) appear to have been handheld? Not sure how you manage those with a camera like this?
  9. Just finished watching Franklin J. Schaffner's "Patton" photographed by Fred J.Koenekamp in Dimension 150. Interesting that only two features were ever shot with this process and was wondering what we're its pros and cons and why it never caught on?
  10. If no one else can advise, I'd suggest you consult Arri, who own Moviecam now. support@arrirental.co.uk
  11. Does anyone know what became of this talented young British Cinematographer? He did some excellent work on Brassed Off and Little Voice and seemed set for a long and successful career as DOP, then seemed to work mainly on British TV episodic drama until 2005, after which he resigned his membership of the BSC and promptly vanished from the industry? I've not been able to find out anything about what happened to him after the rather sudden and abrupt end to his career other than he is,apparently, still alive.
  12. Here's an excellent news piece on why Roger should (at last)be recognised his year. http://news.sky.com/story/roger-deakins-the-brit-youve-never-heard-of-and-is-due-an-oscar-11191380
  13. Jean Pierre Beauviala, the founder and inventor of the Aaton camera system was 80 on the 21st of July. https://bscine.com/news?id=215
  14. Cinematographer Gerald Hirschfeld has died at the age of 95. Among other things he photographed two of my favourite films Fail-Safe and Young Frankenstein and did a superb job on both. RIP.
  15. Came across this fascinating documentary about John Alcott, Stanley Kubrick's DP of choice for A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, and The Shining.
