  1. You wait for an article...

    ... and three come along at once.

    Just posted up a great interview with award-winning cinematographer PJ Dillon written by Ian Campbell (RGI). Over the next few days I'll be posting an article by Frank Kelly on the getting your film into festivals and one from Alec Moore on buying and kitting out a DSLR for filmmaking.
