A Talk with Camera Operator Georgia Packard

COW Blogs : Bob Gillen's Blog : A Talk with Camera Operator Georgia Packard
Pre-visualization
Veteran camera operator Georgia Packard began her life behind the camera as a child taking summer classes with Ansel Adams. Yes, the Ansel Adams.

“Ansel Adams was such a wonderful mentor,” Packard says, “teaching me pre-visualization in his still photography. We would go out with a pin-hole ‘camera’ shoebox with only one exposure. I knew I had to get it right the first time! I walked around my subject looking high and low, moving far left and right before releasing the cap.”

The lessons stayed with Packard. “I still do that on my film sets, watching where the actors move and often from where the director is watching the scene. This works really well when there are two cameras shooting the scene together so I can offer up my camera's position.”

Packard now has a long list of film and television credits, including Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, The Avengers, Valentine’s Day, MacGruber and Seinfeld.
