NAB 2016 Discussion – The Role of a DP and Tips and Tricks for the job

A discussion with Art Adams, Brian Hallett, and Matt Jeppsen

While visiting NAB 2016, I stopped in at the Teradek Live show to chat with fellow DPs and PVC contributors Art Adams and Brian Hallett. We began by discussing some of the camera technology on display at the show, and around the 30-minute mark our conversation diverted into a broader discussion about the role of a Director of Photography. We talk about how to work collaboratively with others on-set, communication strategies for clients and directors, and a few creative solutions to common problems.

If you are a shooter or a cinematographer I think you’ll appreciate this segment and perhaps find an interesting tidbit or two to learn from. Watch below.
