Does anyone here have in-depth info about George T. Clemens? He shot most of the Twilight Zone original series, I absolutely love his look.....formats, stock, cameras on Twilight Zone? Thanks.

I want to say they were using Mitchells on Twilight Zone.

As for the stock, it was either Plus-X or Double-X negative. (5231 or 5222, respectively).


It is interesting to note that both of these films are still available today, in a form, more-or-less, unchanged from then.

A big part of the look of the show is in lighting and the cinematographer, not the stock or the camera used. . .

In those days the conventional DPs only used wide-angle lenses for effect, too, and rarely. Most of the time it was well above 35mm focal length for all the shots, unless space got in the way. Focus pulling was a practiced art as well.

BTW, the classic text for attaining that old-fashioned look is '5Cs' .
