Hello all,

 

I have to begin prepping my dissertation in the coming few months. Although I'm not doing an MA in Cinematography, I have been interested in cinematography as soon as I began learning about cineman and the process of making films.

 

 

With today's advent of Digital, everything from acquisition to post-workflow to distribution, I have pitched my dissertation as an investigation into the processes that cinematographers would use to create aesthetics that would help to tell there stories in new and unique ways, before the world of DI's, Scanning and HD Camera's.

 

My starting points are:

 

The use of flashing celluloid in films (i.e. Vilmos Szigmond: The Long Goodbye & McCabe and Mrs Miller)

 

Kubrick's use of a 0.7 Zeiss lens in Barry Lyndon to shoot using candles.

 

The use of Reversal stocks for features, like Barbara Loden's WANDA & Vincent Gallo's BUFFALO '66.

 

If you guys can think of anything that would be worth looking at, referencing films, processes, techniques etc. then please post here and let me know.

 

 

I will also be looking at American Cinematographers as well.

 

many thanks

 

 

Paco
