My first trip to Sundance was in 1995. I had caught the independent film bug after editing my first feature and wanted to watch movies, meet people, and see what that world was all about. I wound up seeing a lot of documentaries that year, and as I came out of a screening of Steve James' brilliant...

Mad Man Don Draper In The Age of Twitter

Turning 50
I remember SHOOT's 40th anniversary as clearly as if it was 10 years ago. At the time, I wrote a little "tribute" in these pages imagining, instead, that it was the magazine's 60th anniversary, and the year was 2020.

POV: By Anghel Decca
A young and talented CG artist recently asked me, "How do you light a car?" We were on a busy set and we were about to roll. I had a few seconds to answer so I said, "It would take a lot of time to cover the subject, but here's the basic principle. First, I light the world around the car, then I...
