Mike Figgis

This was a great special lecture that Mike Figgis gave yesterday at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Mike Figgis is still considered an “indie” film maverick. He was ahead of the digital filmmaking trend with 2000's Timecode, is a founding patron of the online community Shooting People, and created a stabilizer for digital cameras known as the “Fig Rig.” A world-class director, writer, and composer, Figgis believes that cinema is today's best storytelling medium, and his constant evolution in digital filmmaking challenges the way we experience those stories.
