Cinematographer Jody Lee Lipes has always enjoyed working on diverse projects with intimate stories. Jody's most recent project, the HBO series, I Know This Much is True, proved challenging in shooting twins played by Mark Ruffalo. It was shot on film, with extreme closeups on long lenses, and controlling the light was key so that it would match each shot.

John Brawley's recent project, The Great, stars Elle Fanning as Catherine The Great and Nicholas Hoult as Peter, the (not great) king of Russia. John worked closely with series creator Tony McNamara, a fellow Aussie who also received an Oscar nod for writing The Favourite. John approaches each project with a “visual manifesto,” or a set of rules for yourself and the crew to follow with the camera, lenses, lighting, and color story defining what you're doing.

Director John Downer and cinematographer Richard Jones both agree that to be a good wildlife documentarian, it's important to spend a great deal of time around the animals, in order to understand and anticipate what they are going to do and capture it on camera. Serengeti follows the interconnected stories of a cast of savannah animals over one year, capturing the drama of the wildlife up close.
