Overview

Join us on Tuesday, June 16 for Creative Forces Online! This FREE event will feature cinematographer Richard Rutkowski, ASC discussing his artistic approach toward crafting shots and what inspires his choices as a cinematographer. The discussion will be moderated by Technology and Education Development Manager Megan Donnelly with time for Q&A throughout.

Richard Rutkowski, ASC is an active cinematographer whose work encompasses indie features, art and gallery projects, and major studio productions. Richard’s cinematography has contributed to acclaimed dramas including Boss, The Americans, and the period drama Manhattan. Produced and directed by Thomas Schlamme, Manhattan earned Richard two separate ASC Award Nominations for Best Cinematography. Recent work includes the launch of three new series; HBO's Divorce, Amazon's Jack Ryan, and Castle Rock for Hulu, a new interpretation of Stephen King's literary canon set in the eponymous Maine town, produced by JJ Abrams and Warner Brothers. This project reunited Richard with Manhattan creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason.

At Harvard College he began making 16mm films; after graduating, Richard joined the NABET and IATSE camera unions and began assisting extraordinary DPs including Ed Lachman, ASC, Eric Edwards, and the late Freddie Francis, BSC. After earning the Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance for the aesthetic, minimalist film Homework, Richard shot Neil Burger’s debut feature, Interview with the Assassin, earning Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best First Feature and Best Cinematography.

Throughout his career, Richard has continued to collaborate on art world projects. Bob Wilson’s initial HD Video Portraits were shot by Rutkowski, including meticulously staged images of Mikhail Baryshnikov, Winona Ryder, Brad Pitt, and Robert Downey Jr. Over a three year period Richard produced and directed The Space in Back of You, a feature documentary which tells the story of Japanese dancer Suzushi Hanayagi, whose artistry deeply influenced Wilson and New York’s avant-garde in the 20th Century. A more recent art project documented Taylor Mac’s 24-hour performance of the American Song Cycle at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn. To see more of Richard's work, visit see-no-evil.net.
