Adam and Joe sit down with cinematographer Steve Gainer (THE PUNISHER: WAR ZONE, SUPER, EVERLY, MTV’s AWKWARD) to discuss Steve’s unorthodox break into the business, how to (and how not to) get the gig, working with directors Larry Clark and Lexi Alexander, the strange way that Steve joined the A.S.C., why when first starting out it is crucial to not only take unpaid work but sometimes even pay to work on a great career opportunity, advice on how to best break in to the business in modern times, how to turn to your heroes for help when you need it, Steve’s heavy metal days on the Sunset Strip, and a peek behind the scenes at Joe’s upcoming action/thriller EVERLY. Chock full of both career and technical advice, this episode explores a different perspective on the pivotal position and unsung hero known as a film’s Director of Photography. Featuring one of the strangest “5 Minute Movie’s” to date, this is another entertaining edition of THE MOVIE CRYPT that you’re sure to both enjoy and learn from.
