Episode 70 - BARRY ACKROYD - Cinematographer (1 reply)
Team Deakins sits down with esteemed cinematographer, Barry Ackroyd. We covered many topics, including his work with the director Ken Loach and Ken’s approach to moviemaking. We also learn about his work with Paul Greengrass and he tells us about how certain scenes were shot on United 93. Barry talks about lighting a space and how he enjoys limitations. We also talk about handheld operating and how he achieves what he does with a handheld camera and he shares his feelings about operating in general. He tells us how he chooses his projects, his thoughts on operating, his experience of working on Captain Phillips and his feelings about electronic viewfinders. A great conversation!

I loved when he mentioned The Wind that shakes the Barley, Beautiful Movie, I certainly want to do a Deep Dive of Ken Loach's stuff after this listen!
