Michael Goi, Christian Sprenger, Tehillah De Castro, and Steve Bellamy, moderated by Hannah Welever

In our latest Film Roundtable we’re joined by Cinematographer Michael Goi ASC, Cinematographer Christian Sprenger, Cinematographer Tehillah DeCastro, and the President of Motion Picture and Entertainment at Kodak, Steve Bellamy, moderated by Hannah Welever.

In this enlightening conversation we discuss the future of shooting film in higher education, the foundation of cinematography, and how film as a format is here to stay. We invited this panel together after it came to our attention that Columbia College is discontinuing their expansive film camera courses from their curriculum. Columbia College’s extensive film program is what attracts students to Chicago and to this degree, and is one of the last remaining film schools to teach film cameras & photographic theory at this level. 

Along with the discussion, Film Roundtable partnered with Hannah Welever to gather signatures from top industry professionals for a letter addressed to the administration imploring them to reverse their decision.

About the Podcast

Film Roundtable
Film Roundtable is an open exploration with celebrated industry professionals to discuss the filmmaking process and to consider the path forward in the post COVID world.
Film Roundtable was to created as space for artists in the industry to talk openly and freely about what is present for them at this unprecedented moment in time. Most of us have found ourselves, until just recently, in a sort of worldwide, collective pause. We have had an abundance of time to be quiet, to go inside ourselves, to listen, but most importantly to imagine the change we want to see in our own lives and careers as well as for the collective as a whole. A quality of life greater not just for ourselves but for all. As image makers, many of us with voices that are heard around the world, to really begin to envision how we use our platform, our art, to create change for a greater good; a kinder and more just world.
