Episode 82 - JEFF NICHOLS, ADAM STONE - Director/Cinematographer Team (1 reply)
Team Deakins has a great conversation with the collaborative team of director Jeff Nichols and cinematographer Adam Stone. We learn about how they found each other, how they work together, and how that collaboration has grown over the years. They share their preference for shot lists over storyboards and their specificity when choosing locations (and how they drive the location department crazy!). Jeff, who also writes his projects, speaks of not adding camera direction in his scripts. We also talk about the difference in shooting for television and features and the different opportunities found in long-form storytelling. A great look at a close collaboration!

Thank you very much for another wonderful podcast. I am curious to know Jeff's approach to sound design, especially a film like Take Shelter that is rather a quiet film.
Moreover, I am very much interested in how Roger builds a relationship with the sound department, especially with location sound engineers, who I sometimes feel are not getting exposure as much as other departments.
Thank you again for sharing beautiful stories with many people!
