W ith the red carpets rolling out for awards season and the return of key industry events like BSC Expo, celebration and innovation are in the air this month – hopefully providing a fresh dose of inspiration for us all. Inside the issue, we’re peeking under the bonnet of productions including The Boys in the Boat , George Clooney’s latest directorial offering. Based on the true story of a university rowing team’s journey to the Olympics, the shooting of this stunning sports saga presented both challenges and triumphs, says DOP Martin Ruhe (page 12). We also take a trip to Graceland with cinematographer Philippe Le Sourd and colourist Damien Van Der Cruyssen, discovering how they created Priscilla ’s dreamlike aesthetic (page 38), as well as chatting to cinematographer Cristina Dunlap about tonal shifts and genre blurring in the acclaimed American Fiction . I got to indulge a fascination with the horror genre this month, too, chatting with the DOP on the last two Scream films, plus the creator of a new Mickey Mouse slasher film that’s been causing viral mayhem. Hammer Horror – one of the most iconic film brands to emerge from Britain – is also in the spotlight, as we find out more about the studio’s formidable legacy and recent resurrection, on page 52. On the gear side, there’s a round-up of the best new products and tech to get your mitts on, a chat about the latest LED evolutions, a look at lighting for virtual production, and a huge data round table to get stuck into as well. Enjoy the issue and see you next month!
