Tony Scott carved a sharp niche into the psyche of modern moviegoers. His keen eye and collaoration with great cinematographer's like Stephen Goldblatt, Jeffrey L. Kimball, Paul Cameron and Dan Mindel have created films that continue to resonate in mind even now. Starting with 'The Hunger' http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085701/. The use of the anamorphic format and heavy lens diffusion works well with the characters that have transcended time.

Part of the reason I'm in the film business is because of Tony's influence.

More than once I've finished shooting a scene in some trumped-up wannabe short film and suggested getting some "Tony Scott stuff", and spent fifteen minutes shooting random focus pulls and handheld abstraction...

Plus one on the guilty secret. Tony Scott's films, and particularly, Jeff Kimball's lighting were major reasons why I chose this career.
