Oscar®-Winner Guillermo Navarro Named 2013
Kodak Cinematographer-in-Residence at UCLA/TFT

LOS ANGELES (November 4, 2013) — Kodak and UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television (TFT) have announced Oscar®-winner Guillermo Navarro, ASC, AMC will be the 2013 Kodak Cinematographer-in-Residence for the fall quarter at UCLA TFT.

 

The mentorship program will kick off with a free screening of Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth on November 4, at the James Bridges Theater in Melnitz Hall. Navarro won the Best Cinematography Oscar® for Pan’s Labyrinth in 2007, and the film received numerous other accolades and critical praise. The screening is free and open to students, staff, faculty as well as the general public. A Q&A discussion with Navarro will be moderated by Professor Bill McDonald following the screening.

 

In his 40-year career, Navarro has worked with such established filmmakers as Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Part 2), Guillermo Del Toro (The Devil’s Backbone, Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Pacific Rim), Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn, Spy Kids), and Quentin Tarantino (Jackie Brown). Navarro is currently filming director Matthew Cullen’s London Fields.

 

“We’re so pleased to be part of this incredibly successful program,” says Worldwide Marketing Director Johanna Gravelle, Entertainment Imaging, Kodak. “We are committed to this industry and supporting emerging talent.”

 

The Cinematographer-in-Residence program was inaugurated by Professor McDonald in 2000 with the support of Kodak to enhance the learning experience of students with insight from renowned cinematographers. UCLA TFT is the only film school that offers a cinematography residency program such as this, where students can receive direct guidance from cinematographers through screenings, workshops and one-on-one sessions over the course of 10 weeks.

 

Past mentors who have participated in the program include Dante Spinotti, ASC, AIC; Allen Daviau, ASC; Conrad L. Hall, ASC; Owen Roizman, ASC; Dean Cundey, ASC; Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC; Laszlo Kovacs, ASC; Joan Churchill, ASC; Stephen Burum, ASC; Victor J.
