Michael Britt, Lou Lesko, Sarah Leslie and Ben Horton present an independent and irreverent perspective of photography and filmmaking. We have a reputation for calling trends before they happen. A status that I’m sure we’ll muck up as soon as we piss off the wrong person in Hollywood and we lose our insider access. Until then shake a martini, sit back, relax, and enjoy PhotoCine News along with thousands of other passionate readers who make a living being visually creative.
