Bryan Adams set to expand photography by making a film

Rock star Bryan Adams, who also has a successful career as a photographer, says he wants to make a movie and thinks his skills would be transferable to filmmaking, according to a report by NME.

The publication quoted Adams, who last November revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time in a month, as telling Ramp Style magazine (via MusicNews): “I would indeed be interested [in making a film]. I can easily see myself as a cinematographer, maybe even a director”.

He continued: “I remember working with Laszlo Kovacs, who did Easy Rider, on one of my early videos. He had a glass round his neck and was constantly looking at the cloud formations waiting for the right light. Pure genius!

“With smartphone cameras that can capture every moment, everyone can be a photographer. The future will be more interactive and intense, and there will be more cameras documenting everything all the time.”

He added: “One of the most profoundly important things is people using their cameras to document atrocities. Everyone is a photojournalist. From eco-terrorism to George Floyd, photos and videos have completely changed our world overnight.”
