Tarantino is the DOP of Death Proof?


#1

I am sure I am late with my updates but I just saw that… i thought Robert Rodriguez was the DP of the film… it was shot on film, right?


#2

Yes, Planet Terror was shot digitally, Death Proof on film. Robert Rodriguez was the DOP on Planet Terror, Quentin on Death Proof.


#3

who i didn’t know he was technically capable of being a DOP… i am all the more suprised that the pictures i saw are gorgeous…


#4

I don’t see why people are so suprised that he was the DP for Death Proof.

well it’s not like it’s Quentin’s first movie ever. after so and so many years making quality movies, he probably learned a LITTLE bit about cameras, lighting and lenses and stuff… so let’s all chill out, he might not turn into Robert Richardson over night but most directors out there are probably capable of that job to some extent. plus, low budget productions death proof wants to immitate might not have had the budget to hire a DOP

yea ino because if it was that low budget the point that they couldent higher a DP then i doubt that they would have lost money in the boxoffice like they did.
