The Cinematography Podcast Episode 45
Cinematographer Michael Gioulakis
Cinematographer Mike Gioulakis is known for shooting horror films like “Glass,” “Split,” “Us,” and most recently the dramatic film “Under the Silver Lake.” He began with a fine art photography background, taking film jobs wherever he could and getting a foothold with the cult indy film “John Dies at the End.” For the film “It Follows,” Mike and director David Mitchell wanted to create a retro, timeless look for the movie, heavily influenced by photography. He also discusses the meticulous storyboard sessions directors M. Night Shyamalan and Jordan Peele both have for their films. Mike is currently working on another M. Night Shyamalan project for television called “Servant.”
