This week I am chatting to extremely humble and very talented Director of Photography (DOP), Will Jack Robinson,
From early life as a creative student at Victoria College in Jersey to travelling around India filming some mentally tough documentaries, we chat about Will's career path and how he ended up becoming a DOP, when he was originally training as a motion graphics artiste.
We talk about how Will's Dyslexia has been a gift for him and how much he loves the blend of London chaos mixed with the calm of Jersey - especially when walking his two dogs at Green Island. Not bad for someone who originally had a phobia of dogs!
Will tells us about his thoughts on awards and film festivals as well as the importance of sharing knowledge with up and coming DOP's.
We also chat about the important role social media plays in showing work and accessing knowledge as well as the level of technology built in to the average phone camera.
While some would say Will is already a master of his craft, Will let's us in to his word of learning by doing as well as the importance of following the careers of his role models including the multi-award winning Sir Roger Deakins.
And with a passion for playing his guitar, we find out why Will would travel for two hours on a bus journey to play a 10-minute live music set!
Grab your earphones and enjoy!
