Kodak Goes Behind-the-Scenes With Acclaimed Cinematographers at Cine Gear Expo

Eric Alan Edwards, Giles Nuttgens and Rachel Morrison Headline Panels

LOS ANGELES, CA – Kodak will host two discussions with acclaimed cinematographers at this year’s Cine Gear Expo on the Paramount Lot in Los Angeles. On Friday, May 31, at 5:15 p.m., Kodak will sit down with award-winning cinematographer Giles Nuttgens, BSC for a conversation in the Paramount Theater. On Saturday, June 1, at 11:45 a.m., the “Sundance in Summer” panel will feature Eric Alan Edwards (Lovelace) and Rachel Morrison (Fruitvale Station) in The Sherry Lansing Theater.

In a candid conversation, Nuttgens will reveal the thinking behind his extensive body of work — including the imagery, technology, career choices, and his collaborations. The seminar will offer a glimpse into the mind of one of today’s more innovative artists.

Nuttgens shot the recently released What Maisie Knew with the directing team Scott McGehee and David Siegel, and Midnight’s Children, based on the best-selling Salman Rushdie novel. Nuttgens’ extensive feature resume also includes Mehta’s elemental trilogy Fire, Earth and Water, which received a 2007 Oscar(r) nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and earned Nuttgens the 2006 GENIE Award for Best Cinematography. Nuttgens first worked with McGehee and Siegel on The Deep End, a film which earned him the 2001 Sundance Film Festival Award for Best Cinematography, and a nomination in the same category at the 2002 Independent Spirit Awards. His next films include the upcoming features Young Ones and God Help the Girl.

Both Edwards and Morrison recently had movies that were stand outs at the Sundance Film Festival. This panel conversation will delve into their creative and budgetary considerations made prior to and during production. The cinematographers will also give the audience behind-the-scenes insight on the collaborations with their directors – Ryan Coogler who took his first turn at the helm on Fruitvale Station; and the dual visionary team on Lovelace comprised of Oscar(r)-winning director Rob Epstein and Emmy(r)-nominated Jeffrey Friedman, both with documentary backgrounds.

Edwards’ film Lovelace is the story of adult film legend Linda Lovelace, who starred in the 1972 film Deep Throat. The film will hit cinema screens in August. Edwards received an Indie Spirit Award nomination for My Own Private Idaho, and has an eclectic list of credits including Gus Van Sant’s Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up, David Dobkin’s The Change-Up, and the upcoming Delivery Man from director Ken Scott.

Morrison lensed Fruitvale Station, which was the winner of both the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Based on real events, the film follows Oscar Grant on the final day of 2008, and his untimely death New Year’s Day at the hands of a transit police officer in Oakland, Calif. The film will be released by The Weinstein Co. on July 26. Morrison’s credits include Palo Alto, CA; and the upcoming thriller The Harvest, among others. Morrison will receive the Kodak Vision Award at the 2013 Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards(r) on June 12.
The panel is free with admission to Cine Gear Expo. Advanced registration for the Expo can be done at www.cinegearexpo.com. The website also includes directions and additional information.
