V Is For Amy Vincent

Happy Thursday, yo! I'm finally feeling better. My sinuses yesterday made my face puff up like I'd been hit several times by Mike Tyson.  It was not pretty. Anyway, I spent my day yesterday caught between sleep, the internet and trying to watch a couple of TV shows I've been hearing about but never had time to watch, Arrow and Red Widow. Turns out, I did not like either of them. At least now I don't have worry about trying to find space on my DVR.

It's V Day here on the A to Z and my girl this time is making it in a man's world. I'm talking cinematographer Amy Vincent. You know her work from the Oscar nominated film Hustle and Flow. from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Good Life, Mr. Brooks, Black Snake Moan, I Heart Huckabees, the unfortunate Footloose remake as well as Zookeeper and Eve's Bayou.

She got her start in the late 80's working the camera for such films as Heathers, 18 Again!, Who Is Harry Crumb?, Freeway Maniac and Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. Amy is one of the few female members of the American School of Cinematography.Her work has garnered her some terrific recognition as well. In 2001 she was given the Women in Film Vision Award for her outstanding work in advancing the presence of women behind the camera and in 2005 she won the Sundance Award for Best Cinematography for Hustle and Flow.

I can't believe how close to the end we are getting to this year's challenge. I haven't had much time to visit a lot of the blogs on the list so I am going to keep right on going until I finish the list. I did not finish last years list, I gave it a good try, but I failed spectacularly so my goal is to try and finish the list this year. I hope the links will stay up on the site for the rest of the year.


  1. I wonder why there are so few women in that line of work?
    Yes, only four more letters and then the IWSG. And Reflections post. And somebody has a guest spot coming up soon...!

  2. I didn't think I'd like the Footloose remake, but I actually did. Amy's got quite a resume. Thanks for informing us about another stellar, accomplished woman.

    I'm glad your sinuses are clearing up, Melissa.
    Hang tough, girlfriend. You're almost at z.


  3. You are SO admirable wanting to finish the list. I wish I could. I was lucky to get through about 100.... Just posting everyday is nearly wiping me out. LOL.

    Thanks for pointing out another successful woman in cinema.... It's amazing how many of these women are so UNDERPLAYED.

  4. Oh,

    And I hope you feel better Sweets! I know the winds are kicking down here and I was miserable too for a few days.

  5. glad to hear you is feeling better. I'm having a sore throat myself.... not something I need right now :)

  6. Glad to hear you're feeling better. Getting to the end of the list makes me feel ill although I'd love to. Good luck!!

    We seldom think about those people behind the camera apart from the director, do we? Nice pick for today.

  7. She has a pretty extensive resume' and I really liked "Who's Harry Crumb", believe it or not :)

  8. 18 Again is a film my daughter and I watch when the boys are out of the house. It's very cute and a great lesson about second chances.

  9. Sorry to hear you were suffering so! I get that sinus stuff alot-it really is horrid~ Damn pollen is already bad this year?!

    Nicely done on V! I am enjoying your theme :D

    Happy you are better!

  10. I saw all of the camera operator jobs you listed - and she's shot some cool films as DP too! Another corker choice, MB!
