Martin Scorsese | Spielberg and Cinematography

Empire of the Sun, 1987, Steven Spielberg

Empire of the Sun, 1987, Steven Spielberg

It took me a long to understand about cinematography and lighting. I was talking about it to Spielberg one time and he said he grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. And he realized one morning on Empire of the Sun, he saw the mist on the ground and he realized the sun was going to come up like a red ball. He got the shot of the last kamikaze going out, silhouetted against that red ball.

And I’m like, if I see mist on the ground, I run. I’m a New Yorker.

– Martin Scorsese
