Episode 104 - TONY JANNELLI - Head of Graduate Cinematography Studies at NYU (3 replies and 2 comments)
Team Deakins speaks with cinematographer Tony Jannelli who is the head of the graduate cinematography department at NYU. He walks us through the structure of NYC film school and how the filmmaking is taught. He speaks of how important it is for a young filmmaker to find their own taste and intuition and how NYU works to develop this in their students. After speaking with him, it was clear why so many great filmmakers come out of NYU!
Please post further discussion and comments below.
I am curious as to what kinds of literature the NYU faculty presents their students with. I've heard mixed reviews on trying to learn about movies from books, some love them and others run from them.
What's your take? And are there any you would recommend? Thank you.
Roger mentioned that when doing seminars at universities he has noticed students not having seen older and foreign films. Do you have a list of movies you think filmmakers should watch in order to have a better grasp on the history of cinema?
you can google martin scorsese essential foreign film list to start with
I am here to confess that I might be one of the student that doesn't really pay attention to film history( might occurred to me that sometimes its just boring/time consuming/don't know what to look at) , and I hope to improve on this when I listen to some view in this episode.
So my question is Roger did mentioned a few names (director/cinematographer etc) in this episode, can anyone lay it out all so I can have somewhere to start with?
Was it DP Barry Ackroyd. You could listen to the podcast again, could you you not!
