Crossing the 180: Ep. 2 – Shane Hurlbut

Today’s guest is a testament to hard work and dedication with regards to pursuing a career in filmmaking. From his youth growing up on a farm, to his college years at Emerson where he graduated magnum cum laude, Shane Hurlbut knows what it means to work hard. Perhaps his best known project to date was the big-budget McG directed Terminator: Salvation which came out last summer. But his career has included work with famed photographer/director Herb Ritz (for whom he did lighting on some of Herb’s biggest fashion shoots), as well as being the cinematographer on music videos for Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, and other grunge rock groups. In this episode Shane shares with us how his career has progressed from the early days working on Phantasm, to his latest projects using Canon’s 5D Mark II to shoot a feature film. A very inspirational interview that will get you pumped.

He also give us great insight into using both the 5D and the 7D with motion picture caliber lenses. Good stuff man!
