A Conversation with Dean Cundey, DP on The Thing, Back to the Future and Jurassic Park

This is a cinematographer who has left an indelible mark on the history of film making. Not just a man who has traversed pretty much every genre–horror, action, drama, comedy, western, etc.–but also always shown a commitment to storytelling first. Dean Cundey just knows a tonne about how to make images work. He’s been dealing with special effects before computers were involved at all, shot the groundbreaking “Jurassic Park”, and continued on from there.
