Phil Dillon Cinematographer The definition of Vision : Noun : “The ability to see : sight, or eyesight…” Also, something that you imagine, a picture in your mind. This is what we, as DP’s, hone as a skill, and strive for in our daily endeavors… For some, it’s a natural talent, but it is also enhanced by shooting constantly… The word “Vision” can become a cliche’… and we have to work hard so that the process doesn’t become mechanical, or automatic… Commercial filmmaking is, and should be, a collaborative effort. I strive to assess a Director’s thoughts and approach, and condense that into a tight, relevant bit of filmmaking… As you can see, my work is varied, and I think it validates my sense of “Vision.”
