Robert Yeoman, Cinematographer at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, US, today said that cinematographers should learn to respect their editor's work and try refraining themselves from interrupting the work.
Speaking to media at the ongoing 47th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) he said, ''Cinematographers should learn to respect and learn their Editor's work and try refraining themselves from interrupting the work. Even though the cinematographer plays a crucial role in the film making, the role of editor and script are of same importance.''
Mr Yeoman, who conducted Master Class on Cinematography at IFFI, said he never complained about the editing of his work. He said it was his second visit to India, first was when he came to shoot The Darjeeling Limited seven years ago.
He said the work of Satyajit Ray had influenced him and his film making a lot. ''Indian dance numbers and street shooting is fascinating. I believe that cinematographers in India cannot go wrong because of the scenic beauty of the country,'' he said.
Mr Yeoman got his first break in William Friedkin's To Live And Die in LA. This led to many independent features, most notably being Gus Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy, for which Robert won a Spirit Award for Best Cinematography. Robert has shot all of Wes Anderson's live action features, receiving a Spirit nomination for his work on Moonrise Kingdom and An Academy Award nomination for The Grand Budapest Hotel.
