Stan Brakhage discusses cinematography

BROADCAST: Oct. 19, 1970 | DURATION: 00:57:09

Digital audio not yet public.


According to Stan Brakhage, being a cinematographer is being a writer of movement. Brakhage wasn't against using audio in his films but rather he said he wasn't a master of sound and that stories didn't necessarily need music or spoken words. Brakhage also talked about film and magic, about using new techniques to make the pictures move.
