Wall Pfister was the keynote speaker at the Campus MovieFest today. The event is the world’s largest student film festival, and the cinematographer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises shared some of his wisdom.
#CMFhollywood day 2: Q&A w/ Wally Pfister, The Dark Knight Rises cinematographer. It’ll have a whole hour of action sequences shot in IMAX!
#CMFHollywood Pfister “I’m not a fan of 3D. Quick poll: raise your hand if you’d rather watch a film in 3D. No one? You’ve made my point”
RT @EdCabellon: Wally Pfister: “The STORY should be your focus, first and foremost. Then, interpret it visually. Not the other way around.”
#CMFHollywood Wally Pfister: “You must be willing to honestly critique your own work. Until you can say, ‘This is effin good’, keep going.”
#CMFHollywood Wally Pfister: “EVERYONE involved needs to read the screenplay & come up w/ Qs & process. Pre-Production is most important.”
Wally Pfister just told us there is 100 minutes of fight scenes in the Dark Knight Rises.
