The Filmmaker’s View
“The Filmmaker’s View” Video Series
On the occasion of ARRI’s 100th anniversary, we wanted to hear from cinematographers, directors, lighting technicians, inventors, historians and users. We reached out, and we were overwhelmed by the response—hundreds of people from every continent and every side of the industry came forward to be interviewed on camera. They spoke about their passion for telling stories, their love of film, their enthusiasm for technology and their individual experiences with ARRI. From these interviews, film editors around the world have created around 300 short films. You can watch them all at www.100.arri.com/filmmakersview
Also available: “The Filmmaker’s View” Book
