Over on the FilmCameraCourse blog they’ve got an article that helps two key creative people – the Director and the DP – understand each other’s perspective.
The DP handles the technical aspects of the shooting the film, the director the ‘creative’ aspects (ok, it’s not that cut and dried, but you get the idea). But, because of the whole left-brain, right-brain thing that the great creator saddled us with, sometimes these two prime movers of a movie have a gap of understanding.
The article gives 6 handy tips that each should remember when dealing with the other.
Now, if you are BOTH a DP and Director then I guess you have to remember these things when talking to yourself.
