Roger Deakins, Indeed a Master

Roger DeakinsRoger Deakins has long been one of my favorite cinematographers working today. The beauty of his images is generally uncanny and his body of work is impressive, in no small part due to his long relationship with the Coen Brothers.

By all accounts, he seems to be very generous about his knowledge; he frequently gives advice and answers questions in his website.

If you have the DVD of WALL-E (incidentally: if you don’t, you should!), check one of the extras where parts of a workshop he gave to Pixar artists is shown.

But all of this was just an introduction to the excellent column linked below, where he talks about 10 different shots selected by the writer.

From Shawshank to Skyfall, How Master Cinematographer Roger Deakins Got These Ten Shots.
