Cinematographer James Neihouse, A.S.C. joins us to discuss his latest work, "A Beautiful Planet" - a documentary shot on the International Space Station that leaves you speechless, transfixed and downright inspired. James Neihouse strategically trained the astronauts how to use and troubleshoot an IMAX 70mm and then piloted them through any problems they encountered from ground control. Impressive? Listen to this week's episode to learn more.
These are just a few of the things you'll hear in part two: Questionable John Woo impersonations, what it's like shooting on a moving train from a moving helicopter, who wins a budgets-vs.-creative battle in the studio system - or budgets and efficiency vs. safety - how our guest climbed the ladder in production, the answers to questions like Why are we still waiting to shoot? Why are studios the way they are? What goes into the machinery of studio financing? ...and how Billy knew he had finally made it in the business when no one would sit with him at lunch. All that, and more, this Tuesday on Cinematic Immunity!
