With a career spanning over 25 years, 50 feature length films as well as commercials and music videos, Phedon Papamichael is an award winning director of photography.
This interview focuses on the notion that contemporary high-end camera systems from the likes of RED and ALEXA, combined with the HDSLR revolution will spell the end of 35mm. Papamichael simultaneously warns that the availability of technology may threaten the craft.
"I'm really worried about the classic storytelling style," he says, "People need to watch Bergman movies.. Kurosawa movies.. David Lean movies."
A compelling read for anyone with an interest in cinematography and the current state of filmmaking.
