David Fincher - now and then, still flawless
“My idea of professionalism is probably a lot of people’s idea of obsessive.” — David Fincher.
David Fincher on Panavision Genesis
There are cinematographers who became cinematographers because they loved the voodoo of it. They love it when the director says to them, “Right down that corner, will we be able to see that or is that gonna kind of melt away?” And they get to go, “Just wait until tomorrow. It’s gonna be amazing. You’re gonna love it.” And I’ve had those experiences. I’ve sat through dailies and gone, “Oh!” You know, some of Darius Khondji’s work on Se7en. You just go “Wow.” But there is an equal amount of times that you go, you’ll look at it and say, “What the fuck?” - Director David Fincher, on shooting with film stock, SIde by Side (2012)
