Personal Quote:

[on the cinematography of 'Moonlight'] Cinema is a little over 100 years old, and a lot of what we do is built around film emulsion. Those things were calibrated for white skin. We've always put powder on skin to dull the light. But my memory of growing up in Miami is this moist, beautiful black skin. So we used oil. I wanted everyone's skin to have a sheen to reflect my memory. See more »

Trivia:

Does not storyboard, opting instead for straightforward shot lists. See more »
