Cinematographer Maryse Alberti is part of what's still a pretty small minority in that job: a woman. Paula Bernstein spoke with her for IndieWire about her work on M. Night Shyamalan's, TheVisit, and the other two features she has in the can, Freeheld, with Julianne Moore and Ellen Pageand Creed (as in Rocky Balboa's opponent Apollo Creed).
On getting The Visit, Alberti recalls, "M. Night Shyamalan talked to a few people with big names and then somehow he decided to work with me. I think M. Night works with different people for different projects. He finds the person he thinks is the right person for the project he’s doing at that moment. He uses the word 'cast' for crew as well as actors. He cast his cinematographer. So I was lucky to have been selected."
