Takuo Miyagishima: Panavision Innovator
Tim Wilson's Column and The Back 40 with Ronald Lindeboom
"As always, we're happy to provide answers from the people actually making the hard decisions about the products and technologies in which they'll be investing their money, their time, and their expertise." Tim Wilson muses on the "End of Film" issue of Creative COW Magazine.
Takuo Miyagishima was both the spirit of Panavision and the creator of innumerable camera, lens and accessory inventions that include Primo anamorphic lenses, Panaflex camera system and the Super Panatar projection lens. This tribute illuminates some of the accomplishments of this imaging innovator, and the influence he has had on over 50 years of filmmaking.
