An interview with An Tran, director of Moving Pictures: Filmmakers and the Art of Cinematography, presented in the Deep Focus strand of the 2020 International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film was producer by ARRI to mark their 100th anniversary, and features many notable cinematic artists from different generations and of varied cultural and formative backgrounds. An Tran tells us about the project, as well as her own awakening to the art of cinematography.
Moving Pictures: Filmmakers and the Art of Cinematography: As a relatively young art form, film is constantly undergoing change. Decades ago, film cameras were unwieldy monsters on a tripod or rails. Now, a whole array of variants and aids have sprung up: from Steadicams and crane shots to incredibly light handheld cameras. The digital revolution also had a radical impact. And then again, not so much: the collaboration between director of photography and director is still as close as ever, professional traditions and jargon remain, and old masters such as Rembrandt still inspire many film professionals.
