On this week’s Go Creative Show, host Ben Consoli speaks to Igor Martinovic the cinematographer behind many of my favorite films and tv shows including Man On Wire, House of Cards, and his latest project, HBO’s The Night Of. Igor and Ben discuss his lighting and camera techniques, shooting with Alexa and Leica Summicron lenses, and how embracing shadows, shooting out of focus and negative framing make ‘The Night Of’ so interesting.
