The casual film fan is likely to stumble if asked to explain the cinematographer's role in the movie-making process. The person who lights, frames and films the actors, the cinematographer is in some ways even more powerful than the director. Filmmaker Jon Fauer interviews numerous cinematographers, including famous names like Gordon Willis and Roger Deakins -- who shot "The Godfather" trilogy and "Fargo," respectively -- in this illuminating discussion of the craft of cinematography.
