Inside The New Issue: 92

Feast your eyes on the new edition of British Cinematographer magazine – digitally* via our website, or in print**, from 18th March 2019 onwards.

On the Cover
Ben Davis BSC
on Dumbo

In our latest cover feature, Ben Davis BSC speaks to us about teaming up with director Tim Burton for the first time to bring the live-action version of Dumbo to life.

Davis tells us about the challenges of representing a giant CGI elephant, the great collaborations which brought the images to life, and why the gamble of waiting on the production to get the green-light paid off.

Robert Richardson ASC on A Private War

A man who was recently honoured with the ASC Lifetime Achievement Award, Robert Richardson ASC took on the story of American journalist Marie Colvin in A Private War.

He reveals why Marie’s story drew him to the feature, how shooting in tunnels in Jordan was technically grueling, and his experience in linking up with documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman on his first feature.


John Conroy ISC on The Happy Prince

Written by and starring Rupert Everett, The Happy Prince was lit by Irish cinematographer John Conroy ISC.

Conroy tells British Cinematographer why ARRI Master Anamorphic primes proved a great lens choice, why the softer the source is better on faces, and why Everett didn’t want the results to look too ‘nelly’.
