For the hardcore movie buffs, watching the DVD commentary from the director and actors is a must. But what if you were in the room with the man behind the lens?
The session is free, open to the public and starts at 7:15 p.m. It's hosted by the Ringling College of Art and Design Digital Film Department and Riverview IB Film Program.
Pfister is also known for working on Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Scotland, Pa., The Italian Job and Moneyball.
He'll be in Sarasota throughout next week to hold private workshops and screenings with students and film and acting professionals.
Pfister was nominated for an Academy Award for Batman Begins, for which he was also honored with an American Society of Cinematographers Award nomination. The following year, he was nominated for The Prestige, and in 2009, for Christopher Nolan's record-breaking blockbuster, The Dark Knight.
He won his Oscar in 2010 for another Nolan-directed film—Inception.
Between feature films, he works as director/cameraman on commercials. Currently, he is in pre-production on his feature film directoral debut. The untitled project is due to begin filming in 2013 and released in 2014, according to his IMDB profile.
This event is made possible in part by a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, according to Ringling College.
