An exhibition of portraits shining a light on the filmmaking process, from famous faces in front of the camera to the magicians behind the scenes.
For the Love of Film is a collection of work by photographer Phil Fisk celebrating the craft and passion of filmmaking, specially commissioned by BAFTA for the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2016.
Phil Fisk’s distinctive portraits make visible not just the personality but the working world of his subjects, including actors David Oyelowo (Selma, Interstellar) and Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Tideland), cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Interstellar, Spectre), casting director Nina Gold (The King’s Speech, The Imitation Game) and producer Alison Owen (Elizabeth, Suffragette). The portraits capture the spirit of BAFTA and all that it celebrates offering a rare insight into the award-winning people behind the movies.

As well as celebrating the craft that goes into the filmmaking process, the theme in the series was ‘dreams’. I thought this was great – it allowed me to be more imaginative and introduce surreal and playful elements into the set ups.
