On the Cover
Dick Pope BSC on Peterloo
The acclaimed production and ENERGAcamerimage main competition contender Peterloo, shot by Dick Pope BSC, depicts a bloody and brutal episode in British history.
Pope tells us why there is never a conventional script on director Mike Leigh’s production, how he rose to the challenge of shooting the spectacular massacre sequence, and how Akira Kurosawa’s techniques influenced how he captured the battle.
John Mathieson BSC on Mary Queen Of Scots
Another historical feature production, Mary Queen Of Scots, is a powerful telling of the relationship between the title character and Elizabeth I in the 16th Century.
DP John Mathieson reveals how he contrasted the different looks of the two feature characters, how the older lights were ideal, and why he took full advantage of the period locations.
Newton Thomas Sigel ASC on Bohemian Rhapsody
A celebration of Queen and their frontman Freddie Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody was lit by American cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel ASC.
He tells British Cinematographer about the processes behind spectacularly recreating the band’s iconic Live Aid concert, the changing looks during the band’s rise to fame, and his enthusiasm for visually placing moments back in time.
Linus Sandgren FSF on First Man
Linus Sandgren FSF reunited with La La Land director Damien Chazelle to capture the tale of Neil Armstrong’s moon voyage in First Man, a contender for the Golden Frog at this month’s ENERGAcamerimage festival.
Discover how he deployed a selection of Kodak film formats to depict the emotions across the story arc, utilized 65mm IMAX for the iconic landing scene, and the joy of combining some of the very latest on-set techniques with some of the oldest filmic tools.
