Hi,

I have a university assignment and I desperately need to talk to a working cinematographer. I just have a few questions that I need to ask. If you could drop me a PM i'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks

Or, you could just ask the questions....
EOS 7D.203, EFS 55-250mm, EF 75-300 III, Tamron 16-300 DiII VC PZD Macro, SpeedLite 580EX II.

Just thought it'd be better over PM.

Anyway these are the questions, I'd also need your name and if you have a reel I'd love to have a watch.

•   What was your first paid job as a cinematographer?
•   What did you do to get noticed?
•   What do think has helped you get jobs the most?
•   What experience or qualifications did you have before any professional work in the industry?
•   Is there any equipment you suggest buying?
•   Is there any equipment you suggest becoming familiar with?
•   What is a key skill that is needed to become a cinematographer?
•   How long had you been working before your debut job?
•   What have you learnt from mistakes that you may have made?
•   How do you communicate with the other departments/people on set?
•   How do you collaborate with the director?
•   What do you think is the best way to enter the industry with the aim of becoming a cinematographer?
•   What tips do you have on working freelance?
•   What are the benefits and drawbacks to working in a production company/in house?
•   Do you think doing a Masters in Film at University is worth it?
•   Where do you see the future of cinematography?
•   Looking back to when you first started what advice would you give yourself?

When you say "cinematographer", do you mean someone who works on feature films?

I think we're mostly in the "videographer / filmmaker" category here. It is a forum for a hacked DSLR after all!

Yeah I know was getting desperate. I luckily got to talk to someone earlier so this doesn't matter now.
