When director Ángel Manuel Soto received the script for Charm City Kings, he found a connection in the story of disenfranchised youth growing up in a marginalized community like Baltimore- he himself grew up on the streets of Santurce in Puerto Rico. The movie is centered on a young teen named Mouse and his two buddies, who are determined to join the subculture of dirt bike stunt riders. Ángel worked with cinematographer Katelin Arizmendi to create a raw and naturalistic look.

Phedon Papamichael's latest project is The Trial of the Chicago 7, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. The story centers on the 1969 trial of seven men accused of inciting a riot in the park outside of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Since the majority of the action is in the courtroom, Phedon had to generate visual interest, using lenses and angles to enhance the drama and to get good reaction shots of the jury and spectators.

Eric Branco's latest film, The 40-Year-Old Version was shot almost entirely on black and white film stock. Eric and director Radha Blank ran many tests and decided on the film's look: a matte texture with a prominent grain. For Eric, it was the third film he'd shot to go to Sundance in as many years. He felt honored to be the cinematographer of Clemency, which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2019.
