Director Michael Kingsbury

I started off as a fine artist, in classical figurative and portrait. I moved into photography first with 35mm, experimental pin hole emulsion cameras, ultra large format Cibachrome multimedia works, then medium format and large format 4″x5″, as well as pioneering multigrade step printing in the darkroom. and then 16mm film. Here is my ongoing Director commentary series on each film. I begin with a director commentary on my film Gulag Magadan. I have been shooting 16mm film since 1995. Kodak custom perforated cinema stock for me in still camera rolls for tests. Immediately in Film II at film school I began to cut negative and sync image to dialogue, even on un-synched  Bolex cameras, essentially matching image to sound. By Film IV I had made the only feature length dramatic features in 16mm for grad screening, cutting the negative myself and doing the opticals on an Oxberry mechanical printer. In film you have to think before you roll stock, digital does not nearly train the visual mind as much.In digital I’ve shot my films with Arri, Red, Canon, Blackmagic, Sony. As a visual artist I of course storyboard my own films.
