The Art and Craft of Filmmaking - Cinematographer Allen Daviau invites you to the Vampires’’ Ball

Allen Daviau, ASC will recount his experiences about the making of Van Helsing, beginning with an explanation of why and how a decision was made to grade the film in a digital intermediate suite at EFILM in Los Angeles.

The cinematographer will discuss how that decision affected his approach to shooting the film, and how he fine-tuned the look of the photography for continuity and emotional content, while weaving hundreds of visual effects shots into the story. Daviau will also share insights into how he believes the evolution of digital intermediate technology could affect the art and craft of filmmaking.

Allen Daviau has earned Oscar nominations for Bugsy, Avalon, The Color Purple, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and Empire of the Sun.
