Cinematographers with eye problems?
Posted 07 July 2005 - 06:13 PM
So I was wondering if there are any industry people or even just people from this board who suffer from vision problems like I do. I apologize in advance, this thread IS sort of a "please pick me up". I want to know if I'm alone or not.

Steadicam operator turned DP Nicola Pecorini ("Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas") is blind in one eye or has some sort of problem seeing on one side of his vision.

Considering DoH is arguably the best looking movie in the history of cinema, seems to indicate near total blindness might not be a complete hindrance to cinematography.

I'm sure I heard of an Italian cinematographer who had his team describe the location & shot before he went on to explain the lighting & framing. He had gone totaly blind.
Use your weakness to make you stronger & more original. Cinematographers should use their brain more than their eyes anyway.
