LOS ANGELES — At Cine Gear Expo 2013, Kodak (www.kodak.com/go/motion) will host two discussions with acclaimed cinematographers. Cine Gear Expo 2013 takes place May 31 through June 2 at The Studios at Paramount. On Friday, May 31, at 5:15pm, Kodak will sit down with award-winning cinematographer Giles Nuttgens, BSC, for a conversation in the Paramount Theater.
Nuttgens shot the recently released What Maisie Knew with the directing team Scott McGehee and David Siegel, and Midnight’s Children. It’s based on the best-selling Salman Rushdie novel. Nuttgens‚ extensive feature resume also includes Mehta’s elemental trilogy Fire, Earth and Water, which received a 2007 Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and earned him the 2006 GENIE Award for Best Cinematography. Nuttgens first worked with McGehee and Siegel on The Deep End, a film that earned him the 2001 Sundance Film Festival Award for Best Cinematography, and a nomination in the same category at the 2002 Independent Spirit Awards. His next films include the upcoming features Young Ones and God Help the Girl.
On Saturday, June 1, at 11:45am, the “Sundance in Summer” panel will feature Eric Alan Edwards (Lovelace) and Rachel Morrison (Fruitvale Station) in The Sherry Lansing Theater. Both Edwards and Morrison recently had movies that were stand outs at the Sundance Film Festival. This panel conversation will delve into the creative and budgetary considerations made prior to and during production. The cinematographers will also give the audience behind-the-scenes insight on the collaborations with their directors Ryan Coogler, who took his first turn at the helm on Fruitvale Station; and the dual visionary team on Lovelace comprised of Oscar-winning director Rob Epstein and Emmy-nominated Jeffrey Friedman.
The panels are free with admission to Cine Gear Expo.
