Roger Deakins And Roger Pratt On Their Cinematography (With Some Bond 23 Stuff For Newshounds)

One day in the future, scholars with far more disciplined minds than ours will answer, in a word, the reason that the two greatest British cinematographers of the late 20th and early 21st century were both called Roger, Messrs. Deakins and Pratt.

And that world will be “coincidence.”

The BSC* have put a pair of interviews online, one with each Roger. Deakins was uploaded this week and runs for 50-some minutes; Pratt has been online for a number of weeks and is over in 11 minutes or so. I’m sure that if you watch them both, you’ll learn something exciting.

Here are both clips. I’m about to have a short, deep sleep before getting up and throwing myself back into Comic Con for the last day, but I’m happy to have Deakins to listen to as I drift off…

At 36 minutes, Deakins talks about his preparation for work on the upcoming James Bond film with Sam Mendes.

It’s a daunting project… but every film, when you first sort of start on it is “What am I going to do?”

I don’t think Sam would be doing it if it wasn’t built around character.

Interesting. Not as interesting as almost the entirety of the remainder of the video, but very interesting, and lite-news.

Thanks to Film Detail for the Deakins clip.
