Why Can’t 3D Sound Be the Future of Movies? It’s dark, and it’s about to get darker. You slide ten cents worth of plastic onto your face because it’s supposed to make you see an extra dimension, and you’re paying more for it. There’s no need to do a full intro on 3D. We all know it.

In the INTERNET ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CINEMATOGRAPHERS you'll find the biographies and filmographies of hundreds of international cameramen and camerawomen. > Each entry provides you with the following information: PERSONAL INFORMATION [photo; date, place and country of birth; education; career and awards], FILMS [feature films, shorts (= productions up to 60 minutes) and documentaries], TELEVISION [films, specials, pilots and (episodes of) series], FILMS AS CAMERA ASSISTANT AND/OR OPERATOR, FILMS AND/OR TELEVISION AS DIRECTOR and MISCELLANEOUS. > The films are arranged in the order in which they were FILMED [not the year of copyright or release!].

The order in which the films are arranged will probably change in the future as more information will become available. > A number of publications and websites announce film projects in development or pre-production.

For the third installment, in which Rodriguez shares some of the tricks behind his Desperado, go here.
