July 13, 2020

Take a look at what’s inside the landmark 100th edition of British Cinematographer magazine – available digitally* via our website, or in print**, from 21st July 2020 onwards.


As part of our milestone edition, we reflect on how the world of cinematography and the live’s of DPs have changed and evolved over the last two decades since we released our very first edition back in 2002.

We also take a look at the UK’s rise as a leading location for premium cinema & high-end TV production and the remarkable renaissance of celluloid film. Part 2 of this special report features in our 101st issue which is released in September.

Judd Apatow & Robert Elswit ASC on The King Of Staten Island

The semi-autobiographical comedy-drama, The King Of Staten Island, was shot on Kodak 35mm film with the naturalistic look normally associated with an indie movie.
