A Conversation with Mitch Dubin SOC; Colin Anderson SOC & John “Mango” Mang
Hosted by David Daut
From Close Encounters Of The Third Kind to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, the story of Steven Spielberg’s childhood and family life has existed in the margins of some of the director’s most famous works, but now after a filmmaking career that has spanned five decades, that story comes to the fore in The Fabelmans. In this Camera Operator video interview, we had the chance to talk with A camera operator Mitch Dubin, SOC; B camera/Steadicam operator Colin Anderson SOC; and dolly grip John Mang about their roles on shooting this intimate and deeply personal new film from one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.
The Fabelmans tells the story of Sammy Fabelman—the stand-in for a young Steven Spielberg—as he explores a passion for filmmaking while at the same time navigating the turbulent waters of a family coming to realise that even as they love each other, they may not all speak the same language. Directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Spielberg and Tony Kushner, the film stars Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Gabriel LaBelle, Jeannie Berlin, Julia Butters, Robin Bartlett, Keeley Karsten, and Judd Hirsch.
