Clive Booth is in the news again.
This time it is because a new film has been released on which he worked as the director of photography.
It is called “Attacking the Devil” and is a heart rending documentary, about the quest of our greatest living newspaper man, Sir Harry Evans, to publicise the plight and bring justice to those people who suffered because of the Thalidomide scandal of the 1950’s and 1960’s
Here is a link to a piece where Clive Booth explains how he approached the work. And how he had to adapt to the very different criteria and style of working whilst shooting a documentary, as opposed to that of shooting the more commercially driven enterprises, with which he is used to being involved. This same link will allow you to see a trailer for the film as well : http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/education/technical/canon_explorer_clive_booth_on_being_dop_on_attacking_the_devil_film.do
