During the recent Sundance Film Festival, members of the American Cinematographer editorial team were in Park City to help program and participate in a discussion series staged at the Canon Creative Studio, housed at the Park City Museum on Main St. Leading the discussions were ASC associate member and AC technical editor Jay Holben and managing editor Andrew Fish.

Topics included the creative use of cameras and lenses, as well as the “business” side of show business. Specific projects playing at the festival were also discussed, including the Ukraine conflict documentary Porcelain War and the horror film In a Violent Nature. Another talk focused on optics and featured cinematographers David Klein, ASC (The Mandalorian), Bryan Gentry (Luther: Never Too Much) and Eloi Molí, AEC (Border Hopper).

All episodes of the Creative Studio discussion series are available via the Canon USA YouTube channel and here.
