Following his nominations for Best Cinematography from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the American Society of Cinematographers for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network, Jeff Cronenweth, ASC was behind the lens for Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins as the iconic filmmaker. Set during the filming of the suspense classic Psycho, it's anything but a documentary. As Jeff tells us, "It was an historic love story, and one that very few people know. I went to USC Film School and I never even knew about Hitchcock's wife Alma [played by Helen Mirren] or her contributions, and the integral part she played in his movies. So it wasn't like we were trying to copy Psycho and we didn't have those responsibilities, but it opened the door to sneaking in some of Hitchcock's techniques and processes."

Jeff spoke to us about shooting 5K with the RED Epic, and the challenges that came from staying in the world of the 1960s, and wanting to embrace Hitchcock's sensibilities wherever they could. There were some additional time constraints associated with the time needed for the prosthetics that Anthony Hopkins wore to resemble Hitchcock. "In the final analysis," Jeff tells us, "the greatest challenge in shooting Hitchcock was also the greatest inspiration. That's always true: obstacles become inspiration as soon as you stop fighting the challenges and embrace them."

Don't miss this intimate look at the creative process, from one of the finest cinematographers working today.

Digital Asset Management in Broadcast and Post Production * Broadcasting * Ryan Salazar One of the least considered functions at many studios is Digital Asset Management (DAM). More attention needs to be spent on this mostly under-used asset. Many files are created and then unceremoniously dumped into outer space, never to be seen again. However, it doesn't have to be that way; once created, digital assets become a goldmine that just keep giving.... more
