90 years celebrated one of their best Soviet cameramen - Konstantin Ryzhov. His work he gave half a century. During this time, took dozens of pictures, including "Zhenya, Zhenya and Katyusha", "the headless Horseman" and other tapes that we remember and love.
He now can't live without your favorite things. Famous work is the portrait Plaid - now adorns the house of the chief operator, who filmed "the adventures of Prince Florizel". It is a sign of gratitude from the artist, and a long memory. And nearby, on the wall hangs a photo - a scene from the film "Eugene, Zhenechka and Katyusha". Little scene in celebration of the New year.
In the dugout suddenly appear scriptwriter Bulat Okudzhava, directed by Vladimir Motyl and Director of photography Konstantin Ryzhov. Today he is 90 years old and over 40 years of work on the thumbnail on account of his dozens of paintings, which are now remembered by the audience. All, of course, comes from childhood. In a small provincial town there was only one cinema, which was not to expel the boys.
Konstantin Ryzhov, "We were stuffed in the cinema with the boys. Sat all-day session with the session and watched all in a row".
The film Institute received only from the second time. 1.5 thousand willing and only 20 seats. It was exciting. Then he was offered a job at Mosfilm. But he, to the surprise of the entire Commission, chose Leningrad. Studio Lenfilm after the war, swayed long and all the way from the empty corridors up to 25 paintings per year Constantine I. Ryzhov went along with the Studio. And all the secrets and complexity of the Soviet cinema remembers it very well. Favorite "Old old story", "the headless Horseman", "Armed and dangerous" - all these films were made in different parts of the country, in different conditions, with different Directors.
Ryzhov now calls those years the stone age - imperfect technique, insensitive film, but the result is supposed to be excellent. Under the film it's the operator who picked up the makeup to the actors. The assistant rushed to the actors to put them under the light. In his 90 Konstantin Ilyich retired. Watching new movies or what not, managed to see once. And according to operator's habit, looking for flaws, which are not, in their own paintings.
