Hi Roger!

as far as I understand you generally dislike zoom lenses but I got the impression that you used zooms in the movie the Village. Am I right? If so why? For example I thought that you had zoomed instead of pushing in? Or am I wrong?

Yes, we did use a zoom for specific shots in 'The Village' and I also used a zoom on a couple of occasions in '1984'. All the shots were to draw in attention to detail within the frame. I suppose as if you were observing something and studying a particular element of the scene in front of you.
