John Seale, ACS, ASC — ‘The Tourist’

This month we are speaking to accomplished filmmaker and one of Australia's most talented exports, Oscar winning director of photography, John Seale.

Mr. Seale has DP-ed nearly 40 feature films and began his career as a camera operator, shooting for the likes of director of photography Russell Boyd and director Peter Weir. He has won 2 ACS awards, an ASC award, a BAFTA and an Oscar, and has been nominated for many more. His contributions to world cinema and cinematography were recognized in 2011 with a lifetime achievement award at Camerimage and earlier in the year, the ASC International Award. He is perhaps best known for his collaborations with visionary directors Peter Weir and the late Anthony Minghella, shooting modern classics such as Witness, The Mosquito Coast, Dead Poet's Society, Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley and The English Patient, the film which gained him his BAFTA, ASC award and Oscar wins. His most recent film, The Tourist, is a yet another testament to Mr. Seale's extraordinary talent and vision behind the camera.
