For film buffs, there are fewer personalities in cinema more fascinating than Stanley Kubrick. In the latter part of career his enigmatic and secretive nature fueled a number of delicious rumours, legends and tall tales. The Shining is one of the most storied productions of his career, a reportedly arduous shoot, shooting for over a year with Kubrick, the producer/director/dictator at his methodical best and worst.
Not only will Kubrick’s revered horror film be up on the big screen again, but we get to talk Garrett Brown discussing many of these production stories. Brown is the renowned inventor of the Steadicam, first used in 1976’s Bound for Glory and Rocky and used most extensively for the first time in The Shining. Brown will speak not only to his work on the film, but the creation of this influential tool in film production and his long history in Hollywood.
Curating and hosting the screenings is Alan Bacchus Toronto-based writer, filmmaker and film industry professional - a film contributor for Exclaim!, the creator of Daily Film Dose.com and the Business Affairs Specialist for Astral’s The Harold Greenberg Fund. He also programs Canadian Cinema in Revue, also at The Revue.
The non-profit Canadian Society of Cinematographers was established in 1957 to promote the art and craft of cinematography and to recognize the common bonds that link film and video professionals, from the aspiring student and camera assistant to the news veteran and senior director of photography.
