Go behind the scenes to learn from Sundance Advisors in our Conversations from the Sundance Labs series. This collection of videos will deepen your understanding of all the creative disciplines that are supported through our Labs.
In this conversation, Founding Senior Director Michelle Satter leads a discussion with veteran Cinematographers Robert Elswit (MICHAEL CLAYTON, THERE WILL BE BLOOD), Bradford Young (AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS, WHEN THEY SEE US) and Charlotte Bruus Christensen (A QUIET PLACE, THE HUNT). They explain their preparation process, the collaboration between a director of photography and a director, and the impact of camera and lighting on storytelling. Each DP provides insight into using cinematography to tell their stories, sharing clips from THE HUNT, shot by Bruus Christensen; UNTITLED, a short film by Young; and MICHAEL CLAYTON, shot by Elswit.
