Our Nutopian Hero of the Day... VITTORIO STORARO







VITTORIO STORARO
"I have always thought that film was capable of registering the emotions of the people who participated in the making of a movie.
A movie is like a soloist playing in a symphony. They may have personal feelings about the music, but they must play the same tune under one conductor.
As Cinematographers, we write with LIGHT and MOTION, using SHADE and COLOUR to punctuate one important part of the vocabulary of cinema.
Images are the language of cinema. They are formed by the embrace and the conflict of LIGHT and SHADOW, orchestrated on the screen by one of the co-authors of the film: the author of cinematography.
It doesn't matter in which part of the world the screen is. Through this screen we are able to express ourselves, our culture, our sentiments and our emotions. Through this screen we are able to learn and to teach each other.
Through this screen we are able to grow up together."

Storaro is one of the greatest cinematographers that has ever lived. We at the Nutopia Forum have been so inspired by his films and would love to recommend that you check out the following:
The Conformist, Last Tango in Paris, Apocalypse Now, Dick Tracy and La Luna.
Storaro, we salute you!!!
