Watch: '12 Years,' 'Captain Phillips' and 'Llewyn Davis' Cinematographers Talk Film vs. Digital and 3D

The Hollywood Reporter's been doing a great job with their annual Roundtable video series, posting fascinating in depth discussions with some of this year's top screenwriters, actors and directors. For their first ever Cinematographer Roundtable they invited Barry Ackroyd ("Captain Phillips"), Sean Bobbitt ("12 Years a Slave"), Bruno Delbonnel ("Inside Llewyn Davis"), Stuart Dryburgh ("The Secret Life of Walter Mitty") and Phedon Papamichael ("Nebraska") for a candid chat that covers a wide range of topics including the move to digital and the waning popularity of the 3D format.

Watch the discussion below:

    The editing of this was awful. It wasn't even in sync at some points.

    I agree. Barry Ackroyd was out of sync for the whole interview and was it even match-graded? The irony is that what these master craftsmen achieve in their own work and talk about in this film isn't echoed in how THR have put it together. Bit of an insult to these great cinematographers really.

    An absolutely amazing interview! These guys are so incredible. Hats off to the Reporter for digging in with substantial coverage of these categories.

    CORRECTION: Sean Bobbitt for 12 Years a Slave and The Place Beyond the Pines.
