Verite Cinematography: Zachary Levy In Conversation With Albert Maysles
a DCTV Presents Master Class

Filmmaker Zachary Levy (Strongman) sits down for a conversation with legendary filmmaker and cameraman Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Salesman, Gimme Shelter) to discuss the how's and why's of verite cinematography. Using examples from both their work and a free-ranging format, topics will cover everything from camera choices to how the operator's body language affects a scene, with an eye towards making not just better images, but better films.

ALBERT MAYSLES is a pioneer of Direct Cinema who, with his brother David were among the first to make nonfiction feature films (Gimme Shelter, Salesman, Grey Gardens) where the drama of life unfolds as is without scripts, sets, interviews or narration. "Al truly does have the eye of a poet. Which is ultimately what makes the camera disappear and give way to life." - Martin Scorsese. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship (1965), a Peabody, an Emmy, five Lifetime Achievement Awards, the award for best cinematography at Sundance (2002) for Lalee's Kin which was also nominated in 2001 for an Academy Award and the Columbia Dupont Award (2004). He is also the founder of Harlem's beloved Maysles Institute.

ZACHARY LEVY is the filmmaker behind the verite cult-classic documentary Strongman. Accolades include a Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance and a spot on Roger Ebert's Best of Year list. He is also a go-to documentary Director of Photography working on everything from 60 Minutes and Oprah to countless independent documentary productions. Zach teaches here at DCTV and at Columbia University.
