Wally Pfister’s Advice for Cinematographers

“Cinematography is one part Artistry and one part Craftsmanship”

“The outside world sees us as technicians… but the important thing is that we’re not treated like technicians, that we are not treated like anything else but visual storytellers of the film.”

“You got to respect the story first, you have to respect the actors, you have to respect whatever it is that the director needs to get that story onto film”

“You have to fight a few battles to make sure that you can give them exactly what [the director] wants”
