DON BURGESS (Director of Photography) most recently lensed the Albert and Allen Hughes post-apocalyptic drama, “The Book of Eli,” starring Denzel Washington. Burgess was previously honored with an Academy Award® nomination for his cinematography on Robert Zemeckis’ Oscar-winning hit “Forrest Gump.” Burgess also received BAFTA and American Society of Cinematographer Award nominations for his work on that film. He has enjoyed a long association with Zemeckis, having also lensed the directors’ films “The Polar Express,” “Cast Away,” “What Lies Beneath” and “Contact.” He earlier won a CableACE Award for his work on a Zemeckis-directed episode of “Tales from the Crypt.” Burgess’ diverse feature film credits also include the smash hit comedy fable “Enchanted,” the blockbuster action hits “Spider-Man” and “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”; the adventure film “Eight Below”; and the comedies “Fool’s Gold,” “My Super Ex-Girlfriend,” “13 Going on 30,” “Christmas with the Kranks” and “Forget Paris.” You can email your questions to 123FilmEasy@Gmail.com and we'll answer them "LIVE ON AIR."
