Green was recently awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Cinematographers. Jack will talk about the role of lighting (70% of production work ) and mood; his mastery of cinematography in terms of efficiency and cooperation and how this contributed to Eastwood’s reputation of always being on time and under budget; the meaning of visual poetics and more. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions. Free to attending guest filmmakers and Pass holders. Jack developed a love for photography that has lasted a lifetime when his father introduced him at age 9 to the art of still photography and darkroom technique. In 1975 he became a camera operator, working on such films as “48 HOURS”, “THE BORDER” and “BEVERLY HILLS COP”. Green first worked with Eastwood as a camera assistant on the 1970 film PLAY MISTY FOR ME and later DIRTY HARRY before working with him as a camera operator on fourteen films. He later teamed with the actor/director for his first major feature as a Director of Photography on the 1986 military drama HEARTBREAK RIDGE. His bond and friendship with Eastwood is legendary.
