A legend. Thanks for sharing, Darren.
He creates such beautiful imagery!
One of my absolute favs. Comical that he doesn't have an Oscar.
It truly is! He said the following back in 2008 regarding an Oscar... Interviewer - Do you think you'll get lucky at the Oscars next Sunday? Deakins - No, I know who's going to win best cinematography, but I'm not telling you! I'm not sure how much awards really matter; does anyone remember who wins? Although it would be daft to say that I wouldn't be pleased ... I'm happy where I am: a kid from Torquay working on amazing films. I'm quite simple. I either want to be shooting films or be in Devon getting away from it all.
Amen. Love it.
He's the best.
What a terrific mentor. Ever notice...? The most professional folks are also the most humble! Can't speak for others, but the more work I get, the more I experience this.
