Sunday, February 12 / 11 am
The primary elements of Ken Burns's visual style are live imagery, interviews, archival motion picture footage and photographs. Much of this cinematography has been shot by Allen Moore and Buddy Squires. Buddy has worked with Ken since their days at Hampshire College. Allen began work with Ken in the 1980s. From the light beams breaking through clouds onto the Brooklyn Bridge to a Civil War cannon silhouetted in a setting sun to lava flowing in Hawaii - to the distinctive pans over old photographs - the iconic “Ken Burns Effect” - how does the imagery get made? What does it take to get the shot? How has the technology and art evolved?
Speaker: Allen Moore, director of photography
