Roger Deakins A.S.C., B.S.C. On his approach to ‘Prisoners’ – Dir: Denis Villeneuve

“I guess more and more, I want to do less and less with the camera. Sometimes, well, we do too much.”

“It’s kind of interesting that we settled on this almost clinical approach to the camera. A number of people call it ‘classical’ or even ‘old-fashioned’. Some people think a handheld camera, lots of action, and zooming in and out and finding focus as you go looks ‘modern’. To me, that’s ridiculous, I hate that kind of look.”

Excerpt from American Cinematographer Magazine – Oct 2013.
