One of the more agreeable and colorful quotes coming out the
half-day workshop held in partnership with the Producers Guild and Society
of Camera Operators echoed from the tongue of cinematographer John Tull
(Braveheart, Iron Man 3 ), "When I hear I will fix it in post, it
makes me absolutely fucking crazy.” The room roared with laughter and applause.
On Saturday, Dec. 12, the two guilds addressed the roles,
relationships, and importance of camera operators as they relate to
cinematographers, directors, producers, and other key crew members. Moderated
by Debra Kaufman, three different panels were presented with a Q&A
following. There was even a surprised guest, camera operator Colin Anderson,
who recently finished the new Star Wars film. He couldn’t talk much
about it, but did suggest it’s a must see in 2D rather than 3D.
