F ilmmaking is all about the storytelling – a phrase we’ve heard dozens of times. But when you leave the cinema, it’s not the technical aspects you hear fellow moviegoers talking about; conversation is usually centred around the characters, the plot, and how those elements affected them. For that reason, good creators know how to select the right tools for the storyteller’s vision. Cameras and lighting are crucial, but lenses are the eyes that enable viewers to ‘see’ the story. They are the vessels through which the real world is filtered before it reaches the sensor and, arguably, the most important tool in a filmmaker’s arsenal. That’s why we’ve devoted six pages (from page 32) to the engagingly pin-sharp and perfectly imperfect glass that captured the stories of last year. From festival-circuit hit The Father to the Emmy award-winning Ted Lasso , these are the lenses that moved us. DEPUTY EDITOR Chelsea Fearnley 32
