Event description
Join the staff and students of DBS for a special Lecture Series where we will be joined by some acclaimed guests from the worlds of Cinemas.

About this Event

Joining us for a special duo of Masterclasses will be acclaimed Hollywood cinematographer Nick McLean and Irish film historian Wayne Byrne. The pair recently released a book on McLean’s illustrious career entitled “Nick McLean Behind The Camera: The Life and Works of a Hollywood Cinematographer” and they will be joining us at DBS to give us an insight into McLean’s much-lauded career.

As a camera operator throughout the 1970s, McLean helped craft the distinct visual style of classic films from legendary directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma, Robert Altman, Richard Brooks, Burt Reynolds, Warren Beatty, and Hal Ashby, shooting some of the most celebrated works of the New Hollywood movement, including Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Deer Hunter, McCabe & Mrs Miller, Obsession, Heaven Can Wait, Being There, and many more.

In the 1980s McLean became a cinematographer, lensing box office hits and cult classics such as The Goonies, Short Circuit, Spaceballs, Cobra, City Heat, Staying Alive, Stick, and others before making his mark in television, where McLean brought his unique aesthetic to the hugely successful sitcoms Friends, Cybill, Evening Shade and the crime procedural B.L. Stryker.

Each lecture will be followed by Q&A.
