Dead Things ON Sticks interviewed The Office’s showrunner Greg Daniels at the Banff World Television Festival last week:
… the cameramen on The Office, specifically Randall Einhorn, although Matt Sohn his number two is also very good … but he’s our DP and I used to sit him down when I told him what we were looking for and I’d say, “truth and beauty. we’re going for truth and beauty.” He really responded to that. “Cool,” he’d say — he lived in Australia, he’d go, “Truth and beauty, mate!” And then he’d go out … so he was always trying to find that moment of behavior, or that thing in the camerawork.
The process of making and writing The Office is one of my favorite topics ever!
