He’s worked on some of the most iconic movies and TV shows of our times.
Now Hollywood cinematographer Nick McLean will be visiting Cork to take part in an evening of screenings and talks honouring his contribution to American cinema at Triskel Arts Centre.
As camera operator or cinematographer, the 77-year-old Californian has worked on films such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Deer Hunter, Marathon Man, The Goonies, Short Circuit and Spaceballs.
His TV credits include Friends, Cybill, Veronica’s Closet and Joey.
A screening of the eighties box office hit Short Circuit will take place on Friday, March 8th, followed by a public discussion with McLean and Hot Press writer Wayne Byrne, who has just co-authored a book on McLean’s life and prolific work behind the camera.
Later on the same evening, McLean will introduce a screening of the cult action movie Cobra.
