Steven Poster is President of the International Cinematographers Guild, a seven thousand-member trade union representing camera workers and film publicists across the United States. He was formerly a member of the Executive Board of the International Documentary Association, and is currently on the committee of the Nicholl Fellowship of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Poster was kind enough to sit down with Cinematic Immunity and share his stories about getting started in filmmaking and working on such films as "Blade Runner" (1982) and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977). Hear these stories and more now in our interview with Steven Poster, ASC.
We also talk about Sarah Jones and the Future of Set Safety (Episode 4&5), working long hours, union negotiations, runaway production and the State of the Union.
