I can’t even begin to say how proud I am that my friend and closest creative collaborator Drew Daniels was named one of Variety’s “10 Cinematographers to Watch in 2016”.
I’ve known how amazingly brilliant Drew is for years, of course, which is why he has shot every movie that I’ve directed. He is one of the absolute most talented people I’ve ever worked with. I’m not exaggerating when I say that if I had a choice between Lubeski, Deakins, Kaminski, or Drew, I’d pick Drew. I have no doubt that he will be on the Oscar stage some time in the next decade, and I only hope that I can continue to get to work with him for years to come.
