The film equivalent of a stroll through the Louvre, the documentary Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography collects interviews with many of modern-day Hollywood’s finest directors of photography and is illustrated by examples of their best work as well as scenes from the pictures which most influenced them. 

Essential.

Vittorio Storaro talking about Gregg Toland around 35 mins in. 

One of the saddest and most hil- NO BITCH, the sad thing here is the fact that you're a stripper. If you want respect, maybe you should've graduated high school. 😂😂 when did stripping become a legitimate career?

Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.

Story /= storytelling

darrylayo:

In comics, the “story” isn’t the words in the balloon, and the storyteller isn’t just the person deciding on plot elements. Storytelling comes from the artist/s of the comic as well as the writer/s of the comic.

The best way to explain storytelling to comics readers is to instruct the student to read “NEW X MEN,” sometimes erroneously called “Grant Morrison’s X-Men.”

The comic had one writer and several artists. The comic’s clarity and stability corresponds heavily with which of these artists has joined up for whichever storyline is going on. Grant Morrison, for all of his talent, isn’t in control of the storytelling as much as some people give him credit for. The issues that people like are the issues that Frank Quitely drew. The common denominator is Frank Quitely’s ability to convey what is needed, not Grant Morrison having a good or bad streak.

In this way, the person drawing the story is controlling the story in ways that the writing collaborator doesn’t control the story.

I FIND IT ODD that in comics, where visual style is so identifiable and individual, the artists are considered a lesser element of authorship than the writers. In film, a director exerts far less proportionate control over a project’s outcome and yet enjoys (or suffers) the overwhelming percentage of the credit (or blame).

From Alain Dodier’s latest volume of Jérôme K. Jérôme Bloche. I’m a huge fan of Dodier’s work. I’m not sure how much of the color is his, but I love the colors too.

I tend to think of Hopey as a firecracker, always on the move and hard to pin down. Full of energy and refusing to stop and think about things. I remember that when Maggie got back from her adventure with Rena Titanon, Izzy told her that it was the first time Hopey'd thought about how…

That panel. Sighhhhhhh.
