First of all, don't feel like you're harassing David, because I cleared this thread with him in advance. Here is your chance to pick the brain of a top working cinematographer. How many people, in any given line of work, get this opportunity?
No question is too fanboyish, although I do expect a certain level of astuteness here. Don't ask him how to encode mov files on Premiere, but do ask him how to light a complicated scene, or which lens to use in a given situation, or which DP he thinks is the greatest in existence.
So I will start it out:
David, what do you think of Chris Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin's work on In The Mood for Love? For me, it's the most beautiful example of how to overcrank.
What do you think of Chris Doyle's work on 2046?
If you had a chance to work with any living director on his next project (and assuming you loved the script and cinematic ideas) which famous director would you most love to work with?
Which scene in any movie in the last few years really blew you away?
thanks so much, David!
