Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 His son Nicholas is a rapper named Lush One. He Was one of the CEO's of the rap battle league Grindtime and has gone onto to be the head of King Of The Dot's Fresh coast division.
2 Was the first director of major films to be admitted into the cinematographers' union.
3 Father of director John Hyams.
4 Claims that he has never been invited to join the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) because they "don't like" him and are biased against directors who shoot their own films. In 1997, he said this to Conrad L. Hall, who didn't believe him. After Hall and Haskell Wexler offered to sign recommendations on an application letter for him, the ASC summoned him for a 90-minute interview. Several days later he received a rejection letter in the mail. He keeps it framed on his office wall.
5 Lives in Santa Monica, California.
6 Was asked to direct Night of the Living Dead (1990), but turned it down to work on Narrow Margin (1990).
7 Was considered as a director for Hellboy (2004), before Guillermo del Toro was involved.
8 Brother of Nessa Hyams.
9 "Spota" (the name used in most Hyams movies) is his wife's maiden name. His love for her and her family makes the fact that most of the "Spotas" in his movies are villains ironic.
10 One of the few writer/directors of major films who also serves as his own cinematographer.
11 Grandson of Sol Hurok.
12 Onetime Chicago news anchorman.


Trademarks

#Trademark
1 Likes to shoot his movies on soundstages, where none of the light is natural and all of it can be controlled.
2 All his movies have a character (usually a minor one) named "Spota."


Quotes

#Quote
1 There's a really wretched invention called a zoom lens, which is the most abused, single abused, thing in filmmaking. It's more abused by young filmmakers than anybody. It's just a vile piece of equipment. As for tricky scene transitions, I know directors who sit down and literally look for those things as ways to get from scene to scene. I mean, what is the point of starting on a blade of grass with a blur behind you and racking focus then to the lady? I mean, what is so critical about that? I mean, why are you doing that? And then, the zoom lens thing does something that I don't think people understand. When you zoom in to something, you are not bringing the audience to the subject. You are bringing the subject to the audience. Major emotional difference. People do not realize that. You zoom back, you are not moving away from that subject. You are pushing the subject away from the audience. It's a tremendous difference.
2 I've never done anything that's totally worked for me. It has always been very painful to watch what I've done. Filmmaking, by definition, is a process of failure and because of that I always seem to be looking for the blemishes in my work.
