Will Arnett

Will Arnett

Vernon Fenwick. He’s a cameraman at Channel 6 – he’s April O’Neil’s cameraman – and Vernon is a character who is from the ‘Turtle’ mythology.

Vijay Sethupathi

Vijay Sethupathi

I never take credit for my movie’s success. I am the face of the movie, but there are numerous unsung heroes behind the scene. From the director, cameraman and editor to the light boy, everyone knows how difficult it is to satisfy the audience.

Tilman J. Fertitta

Tilman J. Fertitta

I don’t care what business it is. I have the greatest respect in the world for that guy that can take an engine apart of a car and put it back together, or the house painter that can paint a perfect line, or the cameraman who can shoot the best shot. We’re all talented in our own ways – just some of us make more money than others. That’s all.

Terence Fisher

Terence Fisher

There is the danger of over preparation, of loss of spontaneity; over rehearsal is the most terrible thing you can imagine. We do have a very close association between costume and set designer, though. And the cameraman is very important, of course.

Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray

My cameraman and I devised a method, which we started using from my second film, which applies mainly to day scenes shot in the studio, where we used bounced light instead of direct light. We agreed with this thing of four or five shadows following the actors is dreadful.

Saswata Chatterjee

Saswata Chatterjee

It is not always important that you have dialogues. How you present your role depends on the director and the cameraman; the actor also has few things to do.

Sam Taylor-Johnson

Sam Taylor-Johnson

My work is made on lines similar to those of a film production. A lot of my work is kind of bureaucratic, endlessly phoning up people, trying to find the cameraman and the lighting man, because I am a total technology-phobe, quite helpless with equipment.

Roger Deakins

Roger Deakins

I did a few documentaries as co-director and cameraman. I started off shooting a film about the war in Rhodesia. Then I did a film about an ‘around the world’ yacht race with a friend, and we spent nine months on a yacht. The film was about how people get on in confined spaces under extreme stress.

Peter Mullan

Peter Mullan

Every film I’ve ever worked on, and that includes ‘Braveheart’ and ‘Trainspotting,’ I’ve always witnessed a director having a breakdown. Every director will have a day, without exception, where they just can’t do it anymore, they don’t know what to say to their cameraman, their cast. It’s the sign of real, physical exhaustion.

Peter Bergen

Peter Bergen

Abu Musab al-Suri is someone I got to know pretty well because he’s a Syrian. Very bright guy, lived in London. He actually was the person who took myself and correspondent Peter Arnett and the cameraman, Peter Juvenal, to interview bin Laden for his first TV interview.

Paul Greengrass

Paul Greengrass

Deep down, all directors feel like frauds – because it’s built into the nature of the job. You’re the jack of all trades and the master of none. The cameraman knows the camera, the sound man knows the sound equipment – and you? You can’t do anything: You can’t do the acting, you can’t dress the set, you don’t record the sound or shoot the images.

Milos Forman

Milos Forman

I can say, with a little arrogance, that I could be an actor, a cameraman, a writer, but composers are the most mysterious people.

Michael Bond

Michael Bond

I worked on ‘Blue Peter’ and ‘Tonight’ and lots of TV plays, filmed people like Rudolf Nureyev and Ted Heath, and ended up a senior cameraman with my own crew. I’d had my first short story published in 1947, and when my writing really started to take off I decided to go freelance, and eventually left the BBC in 1965.

Michael Bond

Michael Bond

As a cameraman, I was paid to stand within a few feet of Yehudi Menuhin performing. I saw Rudolph Nureyev dancing. I couldn’t believe I was being paid for that.

Max Joseph

Max Joseph

On ‘Catfish,’ I’m a co-host and onscreen cameraman, maybe the second onscreen cameraman after Wes Bentley’s turn in ‘American Beauty,’ which is funny and ironic. But before that, I’d been doing a lot of creative nonfiction.

Martin Campbell

Martin Campbell

I tried to get a job as a TV cameraman and they basically told me, ‘You’re mad, everyone wants these jobs – and if you go to England, you’re doubly mad.’ But I worked in abattoirs for 10 months to earn my money, then left for London. I didn’t even know what a director did.

Kate Adie

Kate Adie

People always seem to assume that we have a full, back-up support team – make-up, costume and a driver – but usually, in a war zone, there’s only me and the cameraman.

Jon Favreau

Jon Favreau

When Iron Man’s flying, we’d send real planes up to do the choreography so that we’d get the camerawork to really look like a cameraman was following from another plane. It gives it that ‘Top Gun’ look.

John Nettles

John Nettles

We were on a fairway shooting a scene in ‘The Dogleg Murders’ when I was asked by the cameraman if it was safe to film from where he was standing. I said, ‘Yes, it’ll be fine.’ I then managed to slice the ball 90 degrees into the camera.

John Knoll

John Knoll

Having been a cameraman, I think about, ‘Well, if this was real, how would this be shot?’ I try to inject as much realism as much as possible.
