To help boost student morale during Covid19, Film and TV Programme Director, Lorcan Dunne reached out to industry friends and conducted a number of candid interviews over Skype. These interviews were distributed to students as part of online teaching. 

The first interview was with the legendary Director of Photography, Dean Cundey. Dean Cundey reigns supreme as one of the best, most prolific, and talented cinematographers to ever grace celluloid with his striking and accomplished photography. Cundey received a great deal of attention and accolades for his exemplary work on five films for John Carpenter: Halloween (1978), The Fog (1980), Escape from New York (1981), The Thing (1982), and Big Trouble in Little China (1986). Cundey's collaborations with Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg include Back to the Future, Apollo 13, and Jurassic Park. Watch the full interview here:
