Feast your eyes on the new edition of British Cinematographer magazine – digitally* via our website, or in print**, from 8th May 2018.


On the Cover
Bradford Young
ASC on Solo: A Star Wars Story

Set ten years before the original Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, the visuals on this summer’s big hit in the franchise, Solo: A Star Wars Story, were left in the capable hands of Arrival cinematographer, Bradford Young ASC.

Hear from the man himself on bringing his ‘naturalistic’ look to the cultural institution, why the film was ‘more about the glass’ than the capture format, and the work-life balance during his relocation to London.


Sean Bobbitt BSC on On Chesil Beach

The first full-length feature helmed by renowned theatre director Dominic Cooke, On Chesil Beach was shot on 35mm film in 2-perf by Sean Bobbitt BSC.

Ed Lachman ASC on Wonderstruck

Todd Haynes’ touching mystery Wonderstruck, following a pair of stories set fifty years apart in 1927 and 1977, is the fifth narrative collaboration between the critically-acclaimed director and cinematographer Ed Lachman ASC.

The American DoP reveals how he linked the two time periods, how he took inspiration from silent-era movies, and why a black-and-white look is very different on film compared to digital.

Discover how they developed from their formative years as a metal machining firm, kept up with changing times and demands, and why they’ve always kept it in the family.
