David Fincher : There are cinematographer who became cinematographer because they love the voodoo of it.
They love it when the director says to them “all right, down in that corner. Are we gonna be able to see that or is that gonna kind of melt away?”
and they’d get to go, “just wait until tomorrow it’s gonna be amazing you’re gonna love it”
and I’ve had those experiences.
I’ve sat in dailies and I’ve gone “oh.”
You know some of darius khondji’s works on se7en, you would just go “wow”
but there is equal amount of times that you’d go- I would look at it and say “what the fuck?”
