No Time to Die

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and shot by Linus Sandgren, ASC, FSF, the 25th installment of the James Bond franchise finds 007 (Daniel Craig) coming out of semi-retirement to rescue a kidnapped scientist — and vanquish a villain (Rami Malek) harboring a dangerous new technology — while contending with a fellow 00 agent (Lashana Lynch). Sandgren will detail his approach to the ambitious production and shed light on his collaboration with Fukunaga and other key members of the filmmaking team. Our coverage will also include a tribute to Bond’s 25th adventure on the silver screen.

Two teenage elves invoke a little magic to enjoy one final visit with their deceased father in the latest adventure from Pixar Animation Studios. Sharon Calahan, ASC, director of photography-lighting, and Adam Habib, director of photography-layout, will discuss their work on the project and the evolving craft of virtual cinematography.

AC Archives: 1950s
As part of our yearlong celebration of American Cinematographer’s 100th anniversary, we revisit the turbulent decade of the 1950s, which saw the birth and growth of several widescreen formats as the studios attempted to beat back the rising tide of television.

Also in April, Short Takes will feature the Oscar-nominated short film Brotherhood, set in Tunisia and shot by Vincent Gonneville and directed by Meryam Joobeur.

In addition, Shot Craft will include a number of optics-related topics: What is the lens pupil and what does it mean to the cinematographer? Lens rehousing — why is it done and what are the benefits? The section will also feature historical perspectives on optics from the AC archives.
