Head of School attends T2 Preview

Head of Brighton Film School Gary Barber attended T2 Trainspotting Preview in the Empire Leicester Square as the guest of the legendary cinematographer Brian Tufano. Here is a quote from him:

Where were you 20 years ago? Well, I was in the cinema watching Trainspotting. A film so original in style, storyline and the use of music that it was like a shot in the arm, excuse the pun.
20 years later I am sitting in the Empire Leicester Square as the guest of the legendary cinematographer and Brighton Film School patron Brian Tufano who shot the original film and has since retired.
He recalled that Danny Boyle gave him two pieces of direction when they were in prep for the film, one was to make the camera hoover along the floor and the other was a reference to the painting by Edvard Munch of The Scream.
Sitting waiting for T2, Trainspotting to begin I ask if he is apprehensive to see what they have done with the film and as we speak Danny Boyle enters the cinema to introduce the film. For me it feels like I am waiting to be reunited with four old friends I haven't seen in years. For Brian they really were friends whom he made iconic with his cinematography.
As the film ends I have a grin from ear to ear and Brian thinks it was fantastic. There was a special thanks in the credits to him and the work from the original film that is intercut to help to tell the story of Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie and Renton's lost years.
If you want to feel alive, be taken on a journey and feel the pulsating sound of a cracking score, then T2 is for you.
