Behind the Lens

ASC Members Participate in “Sight, Sound and Story: The Art of Cinematography” Event in NYC on December 6

The Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop) has announced the return of “Sight, Sound and Story: The Art of Cinematography,” which will take place on December 6 at the NYIT Auditorium Theater on Broadway.

Art of the Shot: Eric Lin

The cinematographer of “My Blind Brother” talks his most difficult shot with PV

Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to Eric Lin who is a cinematographer best known for his work on I Smile Back (2015), Equity (2016) and Rudderless (2014). His latest film “My Blind Brother” hit theaters earlier this year and can currently be seen on Video on Demand. The conversation between Eric and myself not only touched on his most difficult shot from “My Blind Brother,” but also about life as a cinematographer who is trying to balance work and life. To focus topics and for better understanding, I edited the transcribed audio from our interview. I tried to keep Eric’s voice and answers as true to our conversation as possible.

If after reading this transcribed interview between Eric Lin and myself and you want to hear more from Eric then head over to Sight, Sound, & Story. Manhattan Edit Workshop’s speaker series. The workshop will dive into the craft of visual storytelling from masters behind the lens. Joining Eric Lin will be Eric Alan Edwards (My Own Private Idaho) and Vanja Cernjul (Marco Polo).
