The International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) is launching “Deep Dive,” a series of virtual panels with the creative teams of union television and film productions. The first discussion, set for June 18, at 11 am PDT, will be with the creative team behind HBO’s limited series I Know This Much Is True, which is based on Wally Lamb’s award-winning New York Times Best Seller. The series, to be held via Zoom, is open to the public.

The panelists are Writer/Director/Executive Producer Derek Cianfrance (The Light Between Oceans), Director of Photography Jody Lee Lipes (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), A-Camera Operator Sam Ellison, SOC (Manchester by the Sea), and A-Camera 1st AC Aurelia Winborn (Black Swan). David Geffner, ICG Magazine Executive Editor, will moderate.

The conversation will delve into the unique, shot-on-film workflow with one actor (Mark Ruffalo as twins) playing both leading roles. Melissa Leo and Rosie O’Donnell also star. The camera team faced many challenges created by a mostly unscripted, docudrama approach to a narrative production.

ICG National President John Lindley said, “We are very excited to launch the ‘Deep Dive’ virtual panel series with the talents behind this acclaimed HBO series. By combining the resources of Local 600 and ICG Magazine, we will continue to showcase the creative contributions of our members and share their experiences with the entire membership and the general public on an on-going basis.”
