Manhattan Edit Workshop, the east coast leader in training for content creators, held its annual “Sight, Sound & Story: The Art of Cinematography Summit” on November 14th at the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway. Three panels featuring award-winning cinematographers discussed their craft, followed by a lively networking party attended by the New York film production community and filmmaking gear and technology sponsors.
This year’s event kicked-off with documentary DPs Tom Hurwitz, ASC (Harlan County U.S.A., The Queen of Versailles), and Claudia Raschke (RBG, God is the Bigger Elvis), diving deep into their varying experiences in documentary filmmaking and how dance influenced their styles in capturing specific moments on their films.
Bringing a New York style to the stage were veteran television cinematographers Tom Houghton, ASC (Elementary, American Horror Story: Coven) and Frank Prinzi, ASC (Northern Exposure, The Blacklist), for our TV Panel. Both DP’s took the audience behind the scenes of shooting in NYC, as well as on locations like New Orleans and London.
The closing panel featured Oscar-nominated DP Dean Cundey, ASC (Jurassic Park, Halloween, Back to the Future), sharing his insights from some of the most iconic films of the past thirty years. He took the audience behind-the-scenes of the Back to the Future franchise, as well as the cinematic techniques he used in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Jurassic Park, and Apollo 13. Jim Kamp, David Leitner, and Sean Weiner moderated, respectively.
