Andrew Droz Palermo's Cinematography

As a documentary filmmaker I appreciate all the challenges presented during the production of cinéma vérité and other styles of documentary work. The entire production workflow can be very complicated; storylines can change in an instant because your filming subjects in real life and you have no control over that, but that is what makes for amazingly unique stories with great depth and heart.

I thought it would be interesting to talk with other cinematographer who have worked on Documentary films and ask them simple questions I think about when I’m watching their films. Below is one of those Q&A’s for those interested.

I emailed Andrew Droz Palermo who co-directed and also was the cinematographer behind the documentary feature ‘Rich Hill’ which won him the Grand Jury Prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

My main interest was in the technical workflow he chose for this project and how it benefited not only the massive amount of data involved but the emotional elements as well.
