David Leitner, a long-time friend and colleague at millimeter magazine, has posted his final Leitner’s Cinematography Corner via one of his typical fascinating, far-ranging essays.
If you don’t know, David composed his column from a unique perspective that includes extensive R&D at Indie-famed DuArt Film Labs, lots of DP work on practically every type of film and video rig, all brought to a boil via a voracious intellect that always wants to know the story behind how things work in our media-officiated society, while not getting distracted by the bling.
But the real reason to read David’s work is to come in contact with good writing that takes witty note of the far-flung efforts of humankind to sculpt memories in a form we can all enjoy. He’s a real resource for both the New York production community and anyone interested in the real world of image production. I only hope he has another go at it.
