Ron Howard is one of the most consistently great filmmakers of his generation. Every film delivers a rich, emotional story told in a way that effortlessly engages the audience. Recently, Scott Bourne wrote about the exceptional race cinematography in Rush, Howard’s latest film.
The images in Rush are the work of British Cinematographer, Anthony Dod Mantle. Visually, the film comes together because Howard hired Mantle and was wise enough to let him get to work. This is the mark of a good leader and, for the most part, that is the role of a good director. This BAFTA interview with Howard provides excellent insight for everyone in production.
