Through the Lens: Conversations with Cinematographers, Dean Cundey

By , posted 4 March 2013

In the first episode of the series, veteran cinematographer Dean Cundey ("Apollo 13", "Back to the Future", "Jurassic Park") talks through his experience with Craft Truck.

Dean Cundy is not just a man who has traversed pretty much every genre -horror, action, drama, comedy, western, etc - but also always shown a commitment to storytelling first. Cundey just knows a tonne about how to make images work. He's been dealing with special effects before computers were involved at all, shot the ground-breaking "Jurassic Park", and continued on from there. A trailblazer, a visionary, and a gentleman.
