    Fred Elmes is one of the best (though sometimes unrecognized) American cinematographers of the late 20th century. Blue Velvet, Night on Earth, etc. Love the podcast, it is truly a great and vital resource, but I shuddered at the question of whether he was “one of the operators”.

    1. Ben Consoli says:

      haha. i know right… everyone messes up sometimes.. but thanks for listening anyway.

  2. Ellie Ness says:

    Do you happen to have a transcript of the interview with Igor Martinovic? I would like to use it with high school Media students in the UK.

    1. Ben Consoli says:

      Unfortunately no, we don’t have a transcript. Maybe there is a service online that can do it for you with the audio. I’m not sure, but thanks so much for listening.
