Camerimage Cinematography Festival Winners

The annual Camerimage confab wrapped up in Poland this past week, celebrating the best in cinematography.

Best Cinematography In A Music Video:

Paolo Nutini "Iron Sky" (Daniel Wolfe, dir.) Robbie Ryan, cinematographer

The festivals main honor went to legendary director Jonas Akerlund, who received the Camerimage Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Field of Music Videos.

Childish Gambino "Telegraph Ave" (Hiro Murai, dir.)

It's not a travelogue. And it's not a romance story. It's a Thriller, burningly slowly over the course of five minutes where it becomes clearer and clearer that something awful may befall Childish Gambino and Jhene Aiko while on their romatic escapade in Hawaii. Just make sure you stayed tuned even if you think you've got it all figured out, because believe me: You know nothing about what lurks at the heart of this one.

Arcade Fire "We Exist" w/ Andrew Garfield (David Wilson, dir.)

Off goes the hair, on goes the bra and so Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield's gender-swap journey begins...

A honky tonk crowd greets him with uneasy stares that, of course, leads to outight brutality. But, there's an escape hatch of music, even if it's just in his mind...  Soaring choreography transports him from the on-the-floor pummeling to a place where his tormentors are nothing more that a dance troupe ushering him to heaven, which in this case is a catharctic climax on-stage with Arcade Fire.

Hopefully he's also up there rocking with Hedwig...
