Being a Cinematographer is the best job on the planet (It’s true. Don’t make me fight you). A thread of some of my favorite Female + Trans DPs.

#EllenKuras - 1st time I met Ellen was at a now defunct (?) Women in Film org event. I was ridiculously excited to meet her. Prob best known for #EternalSunshine but was #Unzipped that wow’d. Revolutionized how I viewed docs. Here’s Mizrahi & Eartha Kitt
#SandiSissel. We all watched #SalaamBombay. Keeping tabs on Sandi’s career introduced me to 2nd Unit DP opportunities. I admired her versatility moving from indie film to #MasterAndCommander. Two visual worlds I love to play in.

I've had Nicky from #TheOldGuard for 25m but if anything happened to him I would commit murder
If Andy was walking towards me the way she chased after Nile in the desert, I just wouldn't run. I'd let her take me 😩😩😩
Andy using a sword and a gun at the same time because shes mastered both as an immortal? Hot (and literally the most plausible)

#TheOldGuard is pleasant and has fun characters, but feels more like a launchpad for fanfic than a solid story in its own right.

I mean, if there aren't already a dozen 400K word immortal murderhusband novels, plus a ton of Andy/Nile, I will be disappointed and *very* surprised.
I think my biggest issue with #TheOldGuard is how little it ends up doing with its premise. These people have been alive for hundreds or thousands of years and all they've done is be soldiers of fortune? Really?
Except for the "he's not my boyfriend" scene (unsurprisingly picked out by a lot of people as the highlight of the movie) there isn't much in #TheOldGuard that makes me believe the characters are truly immortal, and have a genuinely different perspective on life and history.
