Storytelling Rules From 100 Years of Cinema with Cinematographer Don Starnes.



I overheard Don Starnes talking on the cellphone outside a Starbucks. Afterwards, I asked if he was in filmmaking, cuz he gave off that stench. We struck up a conversation, which made it a must to have Don on the show. This episode is heavy on cinema theory, the process, tech talk and gets as specific as what motivates a shot. My favorite rule is “all questions will be answered by the story.” Check out Don’s work as both Director and DP here and share this engaging chat.
