Shooting virtual and re-thinking cinematography
The shifting and blurring of traditional cinema production roles and structures is something I have written about many times here on The Digital Basin. The evolutionary breakdown of traditional hierachies and stratified processes is something absolutly central to conceptualizing and engaging with contemporary cinematic media practice. And we see this re-shaping and re-forming nowhere more profoundly or immediately than in the role of the cinematographer. Where once the very name of cinematography was directly correlated to the camera as photographic apperatus, we now find ourselves where this definition is increasingly problematic as the 'camera' itself becomes just one way of capturing an image amoung a spectrum of means.
