Franciso GózonThe role of the cinematographer when it comes to creating the visual aspect of a film is crucial, since the power to determine the lights from which the image is born, lies in his hands. However, only a few take into account that if the tangible world unfolding in front of the lens is not fitting, the cinematographer might even be Storaro, and the lights might be splendid, they wouldn’t succeed in producing the right visuals in their images.

In Hungary, the situation varies greatly from production to production. There are creative processes where the cinematographer, left on his own, struggles with the departments and the elements to give birth to the visuals with sweat, and there are cases where they can work with a talented and multidisciplinary team, almost indulged, and when it comes to the images, they can freely decide from the many choices. The film, Captives falls into the latter category.

Joseph HodgesJoseph Hodges in his lecture will discuss the rise of the CGI in film and television and compare it with traditional methods which - in many cases - are faster and cheaper but filmmakers consider is less and less.

Perhaps Dr Ian Malcolm should have said in Jurassic Park, "Your VFX supervisors were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should."
