The cinematographer’s role

New Zealand cinematographer Donald Duncan (Snakeskin, Alex) has explained how he sees his role:

“The cinematographer’s role in the creative process is to find ways to express visual ideas beyond the ordinary and everyday; to create timeless beauty and artistry with the tools and circumstances available; to listen as much to observe, in order to interpret the story, the emotion and the vision of collaborators; and to create a working atmosphere where teamwork contributes to a common goal.”
