Roger Deakins – Some Video Insights

Cinematographer Roger Deakins talks with BSC President John de Borman pre Skyfall. This first one is a bit longer if you want to grab a coffee and spend some time with the master. (Though he is amazingly humble.)

It’s fantastic to hear Roger Deakins talk about a scene as you watch it. A wonderful example of planning on the one hand, but being open on the day to the new ideas that the scene presents you. A great director also helps.

A few more great sound bites from Roger Deakins referring to True Grit.  Again showing both his vision and his adaptability.  Watching this clip right after the one above, I was struck by his use of silhouettes.
