Students in Scott Hoskins's Video Production classes learned from Hollywood producer, director, and cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld, parent of Chloe Sonnenfeld '11, when he visited George School as a guest speaker on February 5, 2009. During his presentation, Barry described his career path, emphasized the importance of planning shots in preproduction, and explained how he has used different camera lenses to achieve specific effects. He also encouraged students to edit each other's films as an exercise in order to gain a new perspective on their work. To illustrate his points, he showed examples of his cinematography in the film Raising Arizona and scenes from the television program Pushing Daisies, for which he is co-executive producer. He also shared anecdotes from his work on the films Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing, The Addams Family, and Men in Black. Students had the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
