NEWS ARTICLE: Q&A with Wally Pfister

NEWS ARTICLE: Q&A with Wally Pfister

October 25, 2012

Wally Pfister is a cinematographer. He’s that guy that sets up all the lights and does all the filming. He’s got quite the impressive resume: “Memento,” “Moneyball,” “Dark Knight,” “Dark Knight Rises,” and he’s most recently won an Academy Award for his work on “Inception.” I found out he actually filmed a great majority of it with a hand-held. Thanks to a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, he got out of Hollywood for a few days to lead some screenings in Sarasota. And his parents, locals Pat and Wally Pfister, were probably thrilled to have a visit from their son. Pfister is a good buddy of Director Christopher Nolan and the duo has been working together for 13 years. They are both “old-school” film guys who’re known for staying true to film rather than digital. He’s also pretty funny — he answered a phone call from his wife during the screening of “Inception,” and even pointed out one of his errors.
