An Interview with SNL's Alex Buono About His Upcoming Filmmaking Workshop: The Art of Visual Storytelling 2
Alex Buono is a dedicated cinematographer best known for his work as Director of Photography for the Saturday Night Live Film Unit, where he has worked since 1999.
“Quite frankly, when I began there (SNL) I really had no business shooting a television show,” Buono admits in a conversation with me. “ I was 25 years old and looking back on it, I can see that I was truly a real rookie. But the show gave me this incredible platform to really learn my craft.”
I got a chance to talk with him about his experience with SNL, his upcoming filmmaking workshop The Art of Visual Storytelling 2: Style & Subtext in Cinema, the new IFC series Documentary Now! he directed, and more. ASV2 will hit 32 cities between July 22-Sept 19.
