Cinematography, like all art forms, must first be inspired from something within the artist. The technical and formal aspects can be taught, but to capture an emotion and move an audience through visual storytelling belongs to the realm of true artists.

Light & Shadow asks legendary cinematographers to share their personal perspectives on the art of cinematography and what that art form means to them. Eluding any kind of traditional textbook answers, the program digs deep into the aspects of creativity, talent and drive that form the basis of success.

Light & Shadow was part of the original content that I helped to develop at Zacuto. The company designs and manufactures film-making equipment and started creating original shows and content to promote the brand among filmmakers. Light & Shadow was one of the documentaries we made for their audience. It was very well recieved by the community and was honored with two regional Emmy awards by the Chicago / Midwest chapter.
