Loyola University Forum with Cinematographer Brad Rushing
In this full-length presentation of a forum presented at Loyola University, New Orleans, noted cinematographer Brad Rushing discusses both the art of shooting great video and the art of developing your career. Drawing on his own experiences, he shares his thoughts on why its important to choose who you work with and the projects you accept, why you need to manage your reputation as an indispensable part of your career, and why building that reputation relies heavily on the relationships you forge with your peers and employers. He also discusses how a video crew does its work, the relative merits of shooting on film stock versus digital, and how to shoot great video on a shoestring.
