Wonderful! Thank you!!

Any chance of upcoming ones on Michael Ballhaus, Phil Meheux, and Darius Wolski?

Even Mitch Amundsen or Amir Mokri (even though they're kind of new)?

Thanks for these Stephen, the Biddle and Cronenweth ones in particular will be helping with a project I'm on at the moment.

Given your style choices...How about John Schwartzman or the other Darius..... Khondji?
Also, as untimely as it is, what about a look back at Harris Savides? Although no doubt AC will cover him soon anyway.



Cheers

John

I might get to them at some point but I have an idea in mind of the next few guys i might do its just a question of time and managing to squeeze it in - i doubt there'll be another one until the new year.

If you are centering on cinematographers of the 1980's (obviously an influential decade for you as it was for me, as was the 1970's), probably Robert Richardson was one of the most important cinematographers to emerge near the end of that decade. Also Allen Daviau, Caleb Deschanel, and of course, Storaro continued his great work from the 1970's. I got my BA at UCLA in 1984 and spent the decade making my own short films in Super-8, dreaming of being a professional filmmaker. I went to film school in 1988-91. So the 1980's was a peak time for studying movies, new and old.

Years ago I posted my favorite movies for cinematography, decade by decade, and this was my list from the 1980's. Storaro's name probably appears the most. A sign at how influential these movies were for me was that I just filled in the names of the cinematographers for each title right now from memory... and only had to look up three of the titles on IMDB.

1980’s:
The Elephant Man (1980) -- F. Francis
The Empire Strikes Back (1980) -- P. Suschitsky
Heaven’s Gate (1980) -- V. Zsigmond
Raging Bull (1980) -- M. Chapman
The Shining (1980) -- J. Alcott
Stardust Memories (1980) -- G. Willis
Chariots of Fire (1981) -- D. Watkin
Excalibur (1981) -- A. Thompson
Pennies From Heaven (1981) -- G. Willis
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) -- D. Slocombe
Reds (1981) -- V. Storaro
True Confessions (1981) -- O. Roizman
Blade Runner (1982) -- J. Cronenweth
Das Boot (1982) -- J. Vocano
E.T. (1982) -- A. Daviau
One From the Heart (1982) -- V. Storaro
Sophie’s Choice (1982) -- N. Almendros
Fanny & Alexander (1983) - S. Nykvist
The Right Stuff (1983) -- C. Deschanel
Rumblefish (1983) -- S. Burum
Wagner (1983) -- V. Storaro
Yentl (1983) -- D. Watkin
Amadeus (1984) -- M. Ondricek

Greystoke (1984) -- J. Alcott
The Natural (1984) -- C. Deschanel
1984 (1984) -- R. Deakins
Brazil (1985) -- R. Pratt

Yeah you've pretty much nailed it - and that's a fantastic list David - that's basically the same as my own (although I still have yet to see pennies from heaven - no uk DVD unfortunately).

It's interesting trying to examine ones influences in a conscious fashion - it does force you to examine why you do things in a certain way and so far it's been a really useful exercise for me.
