Cinematography Panel: Bryce Fortner, Shelly Johnson, Martin Ruhe, Lorenzo Senatore
What kinds of collaborations with directors do today’s top cinematographers prefer? When looking for their next project, is there something specific they are looking for – the script, the director, an element of surprise? How do they decide who to hire as camera operators?
These were just some of the questions answered by four of filmdom’s best lensers during Gold Derby’s Meet the BTL Experts panel, conducted virtually by this writer. Watch our full group interview with Bryce Fortner (“I’m Your Woman”), Shelly Johnson (“Greyhound”), Martin Ruhe (“The Midnight Sky”) and Lorenzo Senatore (“The Outpost”) above.
