This is the first in a series of interviews we’ll be doing with all of our The Cinematographer Project filmers. We’ll post an interview with the filmer in their editing space, then we’ll post their full video part from TCP, then we’ll have a Behind The Lens go up after. So here’s an interview with NYC-based filmmaker RB Umali, who was one of the O.G.s in the original Cinematographer in 1997. Get a glimpse into the making of his section, and come back tomorrow to peep his full part featuring the Zoo York team.
