During Sundance 2023, we sat down with cinematographers Nate Hurtsellers(Theater Camp), Dan Adlerstein (Onyx the Fortuitous and the Talisman of Souls), Scott Miller (A Little Prayer), and Zach Kuperstein (Power Signal) about working on their respective Sundance projects, and the intense amount of work they put into these projects.

In this episode, we talk about…

  • Four different Sundance films and what they are about
  • How these DPs booked their jobs
  • Using a single camera versus two cameras
  • Implementing unique lighting techniques
  • Having longer takes with minimal camera movement
  • Working as a gaffer versus working as a DP
  • Finding the community you love and holding onto it
  • Recognizing the opportunity cost when you take a film to shoot something

You can check out these amazing DPs' social media below, and see more of their work beyond Sundance 2023.
