“To me, making a film is like resolving conflicts between light and dark, cold and warmth, blue and orange or other contrasting colors. There should be a sense of energy, or change of movement. A sense that time is going on – light becomes night, which reverts to morning. Life becomes death.
Making a film is like documenting a journey and using light in the style that best suits that particular picture…the concept behind it.”
–The Conformist cinematographer Vittorio Storaro (via)
