Episode 108 - PETER DEMING - Cinematographer (1 reply and 2 comments)
Team Deakins has the pleasure of talking with cinematographer Peter Deming (LOST HIGHWAY, MULHOLLAND DRIVE, SCREAM 2). A frequent collaborator with director David Lynch, Peter shares how he started working with David and their very particular style of working together. We learn a lot about the shooting of the film Mulholland Drive and really love having the chance to ask all our questions. He also explains what “lens whacking” is and when you might use it. Peter tells us how he works differently when shooting film or digital and talks about shooting dark scenes. We cover a lot in this episode so don’t miss it!

YESSSS!!!! Huge Lynch fan. Loved it! Must go off and share this podcast with my other Lynch freaks! 🙂 Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, and the second Twin Peaks are my favorite Lynch films visually. I think Lost Highway is underrated. I never tire of watching Mulholland Drive. And since I didn't have subscription for Twin Peaks 2, I watched the whole thing on a computer screen via shared account. I hate watching film on computer screens, but I made the rare exception for Twin Peaks 2.
Also, I'm not sure what the "floating" is that Peter described in Mulholland drive. He said the camera was on a 6ft gib.... but is "floating" anything other than just operating a camera on a gib?
Or "jib" rather. I always get that wrong. 😉
Never mind. Googled it. Nothing exotic. Looks like it's just connecting a short jib arm to something that looks like a steadycam brace
