Episode 41 is with cinematographer Mark Wolf.
I first came across Mark a good few years ago when I was hunting around for a DP for one of my own film projects. Back then he was mainly shooting documentaries, shorts and music videos.
Over the past few years I’ve seen his name pop up in the credits of some of this country’s best dramas. I’m hardly surprised. His work has always stood out for me. A lot of camerawork is handheld today, but Mark’s choices with lighting, framing and timing are pretty exceptional.
We usually think of directors as having a signature, but when I saw the drama Help, directed by Marc Munden, my first thought was that the cameraman was the same man who shot the equally powerful drama, Time, directed by Lewis Arnold.
We met over zencastr in November 2021. Enjoy this the take.
