FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Robert Elswit & Helen Ostenberg Elswit Talk Filmmaking at Principia College
What we have for you today is a somewhat unconventional Flashback Friday in that it doesn't directly involve PTA, and it's only three years old. But make no mistake. This is a relentlessly wonderful 80-minute conversation with PTA's long-time, Academy Award-winning cinematographer Robert Elswit and his wife, Helen Ostenberg Elswit, who is a special effects supervisor in the industry. The Q&A took place in 2010 at Principia College, where Helen is a trustee and an alum. What transpires is a candid, charming, and extremely fascinating back-and-forth between two seasoned veterans of the industry. Enjoy!
