Anyone here a fan of Joss Whedon's unfortunately short-lived series "Firefly?"
The show is a brilliant blend of science fiction, western, and character drama, and the cinematography by David Boyd is phenomenal... great handheld verite style, use of cross-processing for a flashback episode, lots of lens flares, beautifully blown-out highlights and deep shadows... The entire series is available on DVD if anyone's interested in checking it out.
The show's now headed for the big screen in the movie "Serenity," which opens Sept. 30th, and which was photographed by the great Jack Green (who, judging from a preview screening of a work print, looks to have more or less maintained the look Boyd established, but adapted and tweaked it for the big screen).
American Cinematographer did a web-only article about Boyd's work on "Firefly." Read it at:
