Don E. FauntLeRoy – Cinematographer, Executive Producer
Don’s grandfather was a still cameraman and his father an optical cameraman, hence Don’s interest, then passion for the industry. He was accepted into the American Society of Cinematographers with only seven years experience as a Director of Photography. His reputation as one of the most talented young cinematographers grew rapidly. Don’s major break came in 1994 when he was given the opportunity of shooting David Wolper’s epic mini-series North And South III, which culminated with the ASC honoring him with a nomination.
Don’s technical knowledge is formidable, and his experience is virtually unsurpassed. Starting as an assistant Cameraman in 1972, he has worked with some of the finest directors and cinematographers in the business, including Harry Stradling, Peter Hyams, Michael Chapman, Martian Scorsese, Robert Surtees, Herbert Ross, Haskell Wexler, James Cameron, Adam Greenberg, Richard Donner, Sam Peckinpah, Billy Wilder, Steven Spielberg, and Blake Edwards, to name a few. His style, speed.
