The art and craft behind the camera
In the few short months since starting Cinematography World, we have been busy building a title that can be truly said to be global – in its outlook and its coverage.
Every day we reach out to reinforce our already strong and wonderful bonds with the industry, and it is heartening to know, from the many emails and messages we receive, together with our increasing advertising support, that Cinematography World is welcomed and valued.
Our efforts have encouraged substantial numbers of website visitors from over 120 countries, whilst our print distribution has risen to more than 60 countries worldwide – all figures rising steadily.
With production going through the roof in many parts, red-carpet events in Cannes, plus CineGear Expo and Camerimage getting set-to-go, things have the appearance of approaching normality across the film and TV production industry. Long may this continue.
I am sure we’ll see you at an appropriate event somewhere around the planet soon. Until then… take care, happy shooting and best wishes from all of us.

F9: The Fast Saga
Stephen F Windon ACS ASC • F9: The Fast Saga
Movie franchises have helped to boost box office receipts for decades. In 2021 they might just prove the rejuvenating shot-in-the arm the industry needs. Never is this more true than Universal Pictures’ F9: The Fast Saga, which yet again delivers breath-taking, high-octane adventure, brought to the big screen by director Justin Lin and his go-to cinematographer Stephen F. Windon ACS ASC.
