13.15 Ian Murray | How the science of vision affects the art of cinematography

How do we see? In order to truly understand cinematography, Ian Murray had to go back to the greatest lens ever designed - the human eye. His research opened up a new universe of questions about how we create, perceive, and interpret images. He realised that, as technology constantly evolves our ability to create imagery, it’s never been more important to understand our own visual programming. Ian Murray has been successfully working as a commercial cinematographer for over 25 years, has won multiple awards, and is known internationally as a master of light.
