Ep.40 — Dean Cundey, ASC


Published on Aug 30, 2019

For the last of four interviews from Hollywood, we spoke with legendary cinematographer Dean Cundey. To multitudes of cinephiles, Dean’s career as a visual storyteller needs no introduction. From his childhood fascination with set design to his partnerships with directors like Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis and John Carpenter, Dean Cundey is considered by countless cinema fans as one of the most prolific and influential cinematographers of the last four decades.

His filmography reads like an IMDB greatest hits box office groundbreaking blockbusters and genre classics like “Halloween”, “The Thing”, ”Escape from New York”, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “Back to the Future” and “Jurassic Park” to name just a few. He was fortunate to take classes with Oscar-winning DoP James Wong Howe and following on that, Dean is regularly involved in mentoring aspiring cinematographers through the ASC Master Class Program.
