A documentary in Tian Shan mountains

After receiving the offer to film the documentary in Tian Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan I was in doubt. I only had skiing experience, but never tried climbing. The summit of 4350m seemed a bit scary. The more I thought about it, the more I felt the need to accept this challenge. The preparation for the shoot was intense and I had to learn using mountaineering equipment and prepare my body. I was climbing trees, jogging and running up the stairs with heavy backpack. Preparation included learning about solar panels, weighing film equipment, thinking how to transfer material, trying contact lenses and etc. It was not easy, but worth every effort. It was a great adventure and a source of inspiration. Here are some pics from behind the scenes. A huge thanks for the team.

For the 8th time the Lithuanian Association of Cinematographers held its annual award ceremony to honor the work of cinematographers as well as other members of the Lithuanian film industry and to present awards for the best cinematographers’ works of the year. The ceremony took place in the beautiful church of Saint Catherine in the old town of Vilnius.

This year the winners were chosen by an international jury: film director, recipient of the Lithuanian National Prize for Culture and Arts, and president of the Lithuanian Filmmakers union Gytis Lukšas, film director and cinematographer Kornelijus Matuzevičius who has made over 70 films and has received a LAC lifetime achievement award, film critic Neringa Kažukauskaitė, cinematographer Vilius Mačiulskis and Prague’s FAMU film school alumnus Klaus Fuxjäger who has been working in Hollywood productions as well as independent films and commercials for over two decades.

The “Oak” for the best work of a cinematographer in Lithuanian film went to Saulius Lukoševičius for the documentary Paradise Gowns directed by Albina Griniūtė. The award was presented by the former president of the association Rimvydas Leipus who said the jury decided to give the award because of the film’s “subtle visuals and the cinematographer’s ability to combine artistic as well as technical solutions”.
