Behind The Scenes "J. Edgar", Stephen Campanelli

Recommended Posts

I really enjoyed watching this. Rumour has it that the Steve:Clint relationship is more like the old British system and current Japanese system. Where the camera Operator designs the shot, selects the lenses etc and the DoP just lights it. Certainly this BTS does corroborate this rumour. Maybe people on this forum can add to that?

I think this maybe due to the fact that Tom Stern was Jack Green's Gaffer for so many years on Clint Eastwoods movies. And the combination of Campanelli and Stern as Operator and Gaffer is something that he has grown used to as a Director.

 

I am sure it was different when Jack was DoP and Stern and Campanelli were Gaffer and Operator.

I had the pleasure of working as an assistant with Steve Campanelli on a movie in 2007, the nicest camera operator I have ever met. Even amidst the nonsense of a 2 brother director team he was amazing.
