Video: Phedon Papamichael on Advanced Filmmaking


At Camerimage we applaud all the initiatives dedicated to the popularization of both the art of cinematography and the art of filmmaking in general – the creativity, energy and passion of the people who help to create the images that can stay for ever in the viewers’ minds, but who are – for the most part – “invisible” to the mass audience. 

We are, therefore, more than happy to present you with the initiative of three cinematographers we are honored to call our friends – Phedon Papamichael (“Walk the Line”, “Nebraska”), Janusz Kamiński (“Schindler’s List”, “Saving Private Ryan”) and Wally Pfister (“The Prestige”, “Inception”). A couple of months ago they established “Advanced Filmmaking”, a wonderful initiative that is aimed mostly at filmmakers beginning their adventure in the industry, but can also serve as a wonderful reminder of why you love movies so much.

You can find more information about “Advanced Filmmaking” on its website, and you can additionally read a wonderful article about the initiative written by Peter Caranicas for Variety.
