We lost another amazing artist.

“Zsigmond died on January 1, at age 85, leaving behind not just an almost uniformly gorgeous body of work, but also a track record of having worked with a wide range of directors of clashingly disparate temperaments and sensibilities, from loose-limbed iconoclast Altman to ardent craftsman Brian De Palma, from obsessive landscapist Michael Cimino to dreamspinner Steven Spielberg.”

“Cinematographers Tim Sessler and Cameron Michael shot the footage over three days using a RED Epic Dragon, 50mm KOWA Prominar, MōVI M15, and the new Freefly MIMIC.”
