The Man of Guarntee Duane C. Manwiller

It happened, after seeing some films as just happened watching Last Action Hero on Blu Ray last nite, that you have the feeling that there was a common denominator in the aesthetic sense of the images and of the camera’s movements or better a overall quality in modus operandi. Now This phenomenon for me has a name, Duane C. Manwiller and his last name is quality and professionalism ; He hit my eyes since 1990,fluent collaborator with some of greatest Cinematographers like Dante Spinotti A.S.C A.I.C  and Directors as Michael Mann and Steven Soderbergh , Duane often is credited as Camera Operator, 1st and 2nd Assistant Camera , Steadicam Operator, 2nd unit and additional Director Of Photography , Cinematographer and Producer; Below a list of remarkable films that unconsciously  I Own on Blu Ray , DVD and VHS ,so all of these have make me reach the conclusion that he’s one the secrets of the aspect of the filmic success.KUDOS!!

NEVER FORGET THIS CLUE VARIETY 15 JAN 2015 “Harry’s a talented composer whose music needed editing and remixing to fit the very contemporary subject and ambitions of my picture,” said Mann. “He was one of (several) composers who contributed to the score — along with Atticus and Leo Ross, Ryan Amon and Mike Dean. It would have been preferable to me, too, if the delivered music could have been used as it was.” – “To further underscore the importance of the collaborative nature of the composer-director relationship, a spokesperson for Mann also added, “Michael Mann is responsible for some of the most influential use of music in cinema and TV from ‘Last of the Mohicans,’ ‘Miami Vice,’ ‘Thief,’ ‘Insider,’ ‘Heat,’ ‘Collateral’ and ‘Public Enemies.’ Many times he uses multiple sources and commissions individual themes. ‘Manhunter’ and ‘Collateral’ are examples. He doesn’t plan to change his methodology.”

THAT’S ALL FOLKS…JUST NEED THE CD SOUNDTRACK..
