Making beautiful images: Roger Deakins

The creative role of the cinematographer is to control light in a way that serves the story. After watching an interview of him, something that stuck out to me was how Roger Deakins didn’t want to be recognized for a certain style, but rather do whatever it takes to serve the story.

The youtube video by FilmInTheMaking shows excerpts of his work and highlights how well his applied style fits the story he’s telling.

Whether film school students or just enjoyers of beautiful moving images, everyone can learn something from Roger Deakins.
