In general, what are the main criteria that define your choice of lenses on a project?
As cinematographer I try to approach to every movie in a different way. Of course I have my favourite “settings”: for smaller-films, I like to open the aperture as much as I can, especially in interior scenes. I really like wide open bokeh and vividness. Of course this is nightmare for my focus puller, but he is used to this now! For high-budget films when fewer cameras are used and turnaround of the work needs be faster, I look for lenses which give me as much vividness as I can get with 4-5.6 apertures. In this case, zoom lenses are indispensable.
