The Cinematographer

The cinematographer is the only person on a film set who looks through the camera all of the time. You can see what that’s like as you look through a real Panavision camera and experiment with the different kinds of lenses and filters that a cinematographer uses to create a look that fits the director’s vision. Meet Academy Award®-winning cinematographers from films like ET, Braveheart, and French Connection, and learn how they work to achieve the right tone and feel when filming.
