ZEISS Cine Lenses has launched a new video series, “Focus on Cinematography,” with its first slate of interviews with presenting cinematographers from the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. In this new series, a wide range of cinematographers, whose work featured at Sundance this year, sat for in-depth conversations with Mr. Snehal Patel, ZEISS Cine Sales Manager. Each Director of Photography discusses the making of their new feature film or documentary, the art of cinematography, and their personal approach to filmmaking, as well as some of the tools and techniques used. Mr. Patel interviewed cinematographers in Park City, Utah that came from across the globe.
“ZEISS was honored to interview such a diverse and talented group of cinematographers at the industry’s marquee film festival in Park City. These DPs are first-class artists and masters of their craft. Our brand-new video series, Focus on Cinematography, kicks off with this amazing set of interviews — and will continue as we sit down with talented cinematographers across the world. Our new YouTube channel, ZEISS Cine Lenses, and related social media channels, is dedicated to all cinematographers looking to connect and learn more about the art of cinematography. We thank each DP who sat with us in Park City and shared their knowledge and experience,” said Tony Wisniewski, ZEISS Marketing Manager.
