International Cinematographers Guild Panel Takes a ‘Deep Dive’ Look at New 'Fantasy Island’s' Puerto Rico Shoot
- Wednesday, Sep. 22, 2021
Free Public Session to Run September 26 from 10 am – 11:30 am
The International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE Local 600) together with ICG Magazine will host their seventh “Deep Dive” online discussion on September 26, from 10 am to 11.30 am (PDT) uniting the creative team behind the summer’s most daring reboot, Fox TV’s Fantasy Island. Click here to register
Panelists will include executive producer Anne Clements, executive producer/director Adam Kane, director of photography Sonnel Velázquez, SPC, and A-camera operator Raphy Molinary-Machado, SPC.
While Puerto Rico serves as the “club paradise” for each episode’s roster of guests having their dreams (and sometimes nightmares) take flight, the island’s challenging shooting conditions – wind, rain, mud, clouds, etc. – could only have been surmounted by a knowledgeable, locally-based production team.
Co-produced between Sony Pictures Television, Gemstone Studios and FOX Entertainment, this latest version was shot entirely in Puerto Rico, offering a strong female point of view with storylines that highlight the Caribbean Island’s lush tropical settings.
Previous panels have included virtual production on The Mandalorian, shooting under Covid-19 safety protocols for American Ninja Warrior and, most recently, Judas and the Black Messiah. Click here to register

About THE INTERNATIONAL CINEMATOGRAPHERS GUILD (ICG, Local 600)
The International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE Local 600) represents approximately 9,000 members who work in film, television and commercials as directors of photography, camera operators, digital imaging technicians, visual effects supervisors, still photographers, camera assistants, film loaders, all members of camera crews and publicists. The first cinematographers’ union was established in New York in 1926, followed by unions in Los Angeles and Chicago, but it wasn’t until 1996 that Local 600 was born as a national guild. ICG’s ongoing activities include the Emerging Cinematographer Awards and the Publicists Awards Luncheon. The Guild also publishes the award-winning ICG Magazine.
