I'm a simple man. I see Roger Deakins in the title, I hit like.
Gorgeously wrought . . . superb choice of music. Thank you!
This is Deakins frame approved! Nice as always Dave
to this day his cheek is still itchy
Deakins is the Yoda of cinematography.
I wonder if there is any passion left under his skin after all those shoots. He is so modest that makes him a bit unsympathetic, which makes me wonder, how can such ''cool'' guy shoot the most amazing pictures. Although he is quite brilliant, he seems to be a very bored man, despite the fact that he is pretty much on top of the game.
If we're doing this, I think your take on Deakins' character and modesty makes you seem incredibly unsympathetic.
He is the Keith of Cinema!!!! Denny is Mic in this case. The Cohen brothers are the John to his Paul
"I don't know where pixels come from." - Greatest cinematographer working today :OI get what he means though. Knowing how to incorporate the technology into his technique is more important than the technology itself. Understanding pictures are more important than understanding pixels.
I love the way he is so laid back and relaxed and easy going -- listening to interviews with him are so much fun because they are so relaxing. And it really shows his greatness -- he talks about great cinematography in a way that just flows so naturally -- great cinematography just flows from him like a river.
Somehow Roger looks like he comes in a flat picture-style to not fuck up how he looks in this video. smart..
Legend. Just utter legend....
GIVE THE MAN HIS GODDAMN OSCAR!!
He dp'd Barton Fink. What else do you need to know?
Underrated film. Tuturro and Goodman at their best. Love that movie.
To be such an iconic, GREAT cinematographer, he is such a humble, simple man. Very inspiring.
14:50 "i dont know much about the workings of a camera" i expected a great dp to know all the technical aspects. good to know that isnt what really matters
I can only imagine it's like music: Lots of the greatest musical talents were mediocre at best on their instruments, and lots of virtuosos could never create anything worthwhile. Genius comes in many forms, and only a few lucky individuals in history have had both immense technical prowess and immense creative talent.
chris edouard I think it's awesome to hear that because you can literally get lost in all the tech detail thats always changing.
its good to know, but is not really necessary
For some reason, he reminds me of Burt Bacharach.
I think the draw to the cult of Deakins is strangely how down to earth he is, in the era of Film Vs Digital, Roger's the one who's just getting on with it and just trying to get something shot.
imo the assassination of jesse james is tied with synecdoche, new york for greatest film of the 2010's
Nominated 13 times by the Academy. This guy is a genius.
I love all of the movies that he shot. You could literally watch the movies he shot without sound and know the story.
This guy and Lubezki are my favorite working cinematographers
Roger and Bill Pope are my top two favorites
Miguel Quintero I prefer him over lubezki
agreed. they are legends
Imagine having the opportunity to film Roger Deakins, how do you frame the framer? This guy slaps him square in the middle of a boring ass hotel room...
+Ralph Lindsen haha! 😂
+Patrick Tomasso Haha, when I was in film school I interviewed a cinematographer I admired on camera too. I never was so nervous setting up a simple interview shot :P
Can you get? Lubezki in the chair por favor. Roger Deakins is in a league of his own such a great eye for visuals.
Was Michael Wilmington the Chicago film critic who responded positively during "O Brother" screening? I know that he had it as his #1 film of 2000.
His modesty is killing me haha this guy makes movies look way too gorgeous. Amazing cinematographer. Amazing.
The Great One
Give this man an Oscar FFS!!
so, Roger Deakins likes cyberpunks?
I knew Deakins would still appreciate film and would want it to still be around for others.
The DP Grandmaster !!!
roger deakins + denis villeneuve is such a great dynamic.
Sicario probably my least favourite of Denis films but Johannsson's score for the film is a absolute beauty.
Roger Deakins (cinematographer) , Denis Villeneuve (director) and Jóhann Jóhannsson (composer) is one of the best dynamics in film making. They now made Prisoners, Sicario, and next is the Blade Runner sequel (Denis and Jóhann also made Arrival, the best movie of the year in my opinion).
Next is Bladerunner 2!
yes, the results of their partnership have been brilliant so far
Great interview, great cinematographer.
Storyboarding a film that's not shooting until next june. BLADERUNNNNEEEEERRRRRRRRR.
Saw Sicario 4 days ago, cinematography was unbelievable.And also I loved every film he has done with the Coen, and Villeneuve's "Prisoners"
Best DP in the world!
