Acclaimed Doug Milsome ASC BSC, will be in conversation with Richard Greatrex BSC at the upcoming Hay on Film event.
“I had the privilege of experiencing three of his films…out of the 100 or so that I’ve worked on, they were the best.” – Doug Milsome ASC BSC on working with Kubrick
Perhaps Doug’s most-widely seen work to date is Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves but it was his collaboration with Stanley Kubrick and John Alcott in the 1970s, as camera operator and second-unit photographer, that arguably had the greatest impact on his style. He went on to become Kubrick’s director of photography for Full Metal Jacket and was consulted for Kubrick’s final project, Eyes Wide Shut.
Doug is known for his mastery of difficult focus techniques, tested especially with the idiosyncratic lenses used on Barry Lyndon to film scenes by candlelight.
