I went to the HD Expo last week and attended the Q&A with Lance Acord (DP on Being John Malkovich, Lost in Translation and Where the Wild Things Are, to name a few). We also got to see some of the commercials he has directed and man, he's as good a director as he is DP. Very talented guy.

I was chatting with him afterwards and was super impressed with how mellow and authentic he was to talk to.
