A film about film, Cinematographer Style pays homage to the artists who transform ideas into images. It sets out to answer the essential questions: What is a cinematographer? What makes style? Is it inspiration, innovation, experience? With 110 masterfully edited interviews of celebrated cinematographers from around the world, Cinematographer Style creates a collective narrative about the process and progress of filmmaking. The distinguished group of artists including Vittorio Storaro, ASC, AIC (Apocalypse Now), Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC (No Country for Old Men), and Gordon Willis ASC (The Godfather) discuss their various backgrounds, their dreams and struggles, and, most importantly, the passion they have for their craft. Venturing further into the psyche of each cinematographer, this documentary traces how style and technique evolve, culminating in the new technological possibilities and pitfalls of the future. In the end, these diverse artists are united by one thing: a love of the moving image. A visually striking and beautifully lit film, Cinematographer Style celebrates the passion, dedication, and art of the men and women who make movies look the way they do.
