Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC & David Stump, ASC — Global Cinematography Institute

Hi I'm Sean P. Malone in Los Angeles, California and this is The Camera Report.

This edition of The Camera Report features interviews with Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC and David Stump, ASC. I caught up to Vilmos and David a few months ago at a Global Cinematography Institute special presentation, where they and other instructors from GCI talked about the school's purpose and approach.

David Stump, ASC is a cinematographer, a VFX supervisor and a stereographer. He has served as an effects DP on movies like 'X-Men' and 'X2', and he recently was senior stereographer on 'The Immortals'. His expertise on the changing landscape and technologies of film production are on display here, and in the recent documentary film, 'Side by Side'. David currently is an instructor at the year-old Global Cinematography Institute, teaching "Digital Cinematography."

Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC is a director of photography who has lent his beautiful photography to some of cinema's best moments. 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind', 'Deliverance', 'McCabe and Mrs. Miller', 'The Deer Hunter', and more recently, 'The Black Dahlia'. His sensibilities behind the camera continue to inspire cinematographers and filmmakers the world round. Vilmos is currently teaching "Lighting for Feature Films" at GCI, and co-founded the school with previous Camera Report guest, Yuri Neyman, ASC.

If you want to learn more about GCI, join Vilmos, Yuri and other instructors at Filmtools on March 9th, for a sample class presentation. They will be talking about the next session of classes that begins April 13th. One disclaimer before you hear these interviews: when I interviewed David and Vilmos I was writing a story about changing technology in cinematography, but since that time I myself have been taking GCI's course one. I am also helping them out with a future journalism related project. Thanks and enjoy the interviews.

Thank you for listening to this edition of The Camera Report. Go to to find out about GCI's March 9th event, and their upcoming session. Want to ask a question or make a comment? "Like" The Camera Report on Facebook and send us a message. I'm Sean P. Malone, thanks for listening.
