John Carpenter’s 1989 cult car horror score is being reissued on vinyl for the first time.

TAKEN FROM THE VINYL FACTORY LIMITED GB : Originally released by Varèse Sarabande (VS-5240) , followed by a second Motown version that same year, ‎Carpenter created the haunted moto-synthscapes for Christine with frequent collaborator Alan Howarth.

My contact on Varèse confirm : “Cats out of the bag, yep that’s us! We have commissioned new art and I must say it looks FANTASTIC! We’ll be announcing this on our Twitter and Facebook page WITH the new art on August 16th, join us then Fabio and SPREAD the word on this cool new vinyl product!

VOL 96 (2015) FROM ASC CLOSE UP – BEST PROFESSIONAL ADVICE RECAP

From ASC CLOSE UP american-cinematographer-logo Vol 96(2015)

What’s The Best Professional Advice you’ve received?

THEO VAN DE SANDE, ASC

In Hollywood: Stay on schedule and on budget, and you are free as a bird.

ATTILA SZALAY, ASC

In 1992, I sat across from Georgy Illès, who was then president of the HSC. He learned forward and said,’ Do you want to know the secret of success in this business? As a freelancer, you’re like a call girl; never stop selling yourself.’ I pass this advice along to students whenever I get the chance.

MICHAEL WEAVER, ASC

Never show fear.

TAMI REIKER, ASC

Pick your battles, and never eat the fish.

JON JOFFIN, ASC

You’re never done lighting, but at some point you have to stop.

MAURO FIORE, ASC

My father once told me that a true master only needs a few tools. Pride in your work is a paramount.

FRANCIS KENNY, ASC

‘How to walk the line between clever and stupid.’ Through discipline comes freedom.

STEVEN V.SILVER, ASC

Make sure your chosen profession is your passion.

LEX DuPONT, ASC

From Gil Hubbs [ASC]: We are freelancers and must make tough career decisions.There will be times when it’s best for us to leave a project early.Some people won’t understand that; one probably  won’t have an enduring relationship with them anyway. And  from Julio Macat: be optimistic even during the darkest moments.Cinematographers are highly visible on set and our mood can affect the crew.

JAN KIESSER, ASC

In my early days of operating for Vilmos Zsigmond, we were discussing lighting, and he advised me to observe light in the real world all the time. I often reflect on that as I continue to observe and learn every day.

MARK VARGO, ASC

Don’t ever give up.And make lots of friends in the business.

TOM HURWITZ, ASC

Always listen to the story.Great cameramen use their ears as well as their eyes.
