The Lion King: ASC Members Caleb Deschanel and Robert Legato Pt1

ASC members Caleb Deschanel and Robert Legato recently visited the ASC Clubhouse for a discussion with American Cinematographer contributor Jim Hemphill on their latest collaboration, The Lion King

The film is a photorealistic computer-generated reimagining of the classic Disney animated feature. Deschanel served as the director of photography, and Legato served as the visual effects supervisor. While Legato had previous experience on similar photorealistic Disney projects — he served as visual effects supervisor on The Jungle Book — this was a first for Deschanel.
