Creative Forces is a new series we’ll be presenting in our Chicago Learning Point several times a year. At each event, an industry leader will join us for an informal discussion on what inspires them in their career. Speakers will analyze creative elements from a variety of mediums and participate in a dialog with the audience.

For our next Creative Forces event on June 27, Paul Sommers will show numerous clips from films that have inspired him throughout his career. He will discuss his artistic approach towards crafting shots and what inspires his choices as a cinematographer. The discussion will be moderated by Megan Donnelly with time for Q&A and socializing to follow.

Paul Sommers (DP, Empire) started his career 28 years ago in Chicago as a grip. Since then, he has worked as a Director of Photography on several television shows including The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Rectify. He currently works at Cinespace Chicago Studios as the Director of Photography for Empire, and just completed two episodes of the new Amazon series Electric Dreams.
