Cinematographer Roger Deakins ready for 'daunting' Bond 23
In a recent video interview with the British Society of Cinematographers, Roger Deakins - famed for his camera work with the Cohen brothers - spoke in brief about his forthcoming work for James Bond 23.
"Itâs a daunting project..." says the cinematographer of his first run in with James Bond. "Every film," he says, "when you first sort of start on it is 'What am I going to do?'"
But, any apprehension about the formidable legacy of the 007 franchise was in part mitigated by his good working relationship with the 23rd James Bond film's director: Sam Mendes. Mendes and Deakins previously worked on "Revolutionary Road".
Of the director Roger Deakins briefly suggests: "I donât think Sam would be doing it if it wasnât built around character."
