Visions of Light: Review

I really enjoyed watching this documentary. I really appreciated how they chose to break down the film by providing actual movie clips to watch and visually better understand the role of the cinematographer in film’s history (especially the transition from black and white into color). I especially found interesting the process it took to getting to color. From black and white, to 2-color, to 3-color, etc. Until finally we have technicolor films. Also, the way they explained the importance of the cinematographer was interesting to hear. Even as a photographer, sometimes its easy to overlook the importance of the cinematographer to a film project (especially when you’re in the moment of watching a movie). This has only heightened my appreciation for cinematographers and the works of art they produce.
