PAINTING WITH LIGHT: Great Cinematography on Film PART II

When director Martin Scorsese said: “Cinema is a matter of what’s in the frame and what’s
out,” he was refering to the fact that the finest acting, singing, dancing, or written
dialogue on any film set or locarion will never be seen or appreciated unless it is captured
beautifully by the Director of Photography, commonly known as the Cinematographer or
the DP. Working in concert with the film’s director and its production designer, the Director
of Photography is ultimately responsible for capturing everything that we see in a movie,
and for the overall look of the film. This series will look at films that have been shot by
some of cinema’s greatest cinematographers, such as John Alcott, Raoul Coutard, Roland
Totheroh, Sven Nykvist, and Vittorio Sroraro, featuring films by great directors such as
Stanley Kubrick, Kean-Luc Godard, Charlie Chaplin, Woody Allen, and Bernardo Bertolucci.
