On Set With Robert Zuckerman

EDFX has posted a video with Set Photographer Robert Zuckerman about his career and work both on and off Hollywood film sets. In the video is specifically some footage as he works on the Princeton set last June as part of his work on Transformers 2. He doesn't reveal any movie spoilers but it’s an interesting video.

The video is below. Click here for background and examples of Zuckerman's work from Transformers I. You can also see more of his non-film work at his blog Kindsight. Thanks to Edward for the link.

  2. The book is a good idea but the whole video seems to be a sale pitch for his book. Although it was probably meant to be. To be honest i would have thought we would have someone who actually composited the shots for the robot scene`s but i suppose this is okay for now.

  3. when robert mention he doesn't like violence but works for a living in making violence on screen he contradict himself. but he must contradict himself because in order to get rid of something you must become it and because it's what humans do more often than you think you don't.

  4. I think the whole point of the video was to feature the on-set photographer of Transformers - Robert Zuckerman. What's the confusion? He is a tip top photog on Hollywood sets, but also has an admirable passion project in Kindsight. It's rather amazing, actually. To try to find some sort of "contradiction" is a little silly when you're addressing a man who actively advocates humanity. How about celebrating someone who does amazing work in high profile projects and then spreads the wealth to everyday people! Kudos Robert. Very cool video.

  5. It is in fact a condradiction. I do not like violence in films and believe that other choices can be made. Unfortunately, I have for decades been responsible for supporting my two diabled sisters and our Mom, and the reality is that when work is offered to me, particualrly in the current economy, I have to do it in order to support my family. Within this, I do my best to be a good person, with my co-workers and others, and to make as many choices as I can to foster good will, understanding and good energy in the world.
