Mandy Walker

Cinematographer, 'Australia'

“Australia” cinematographer Walker recalls the time she spent among the ochre earth and pudgy boab trees of her country’s remote Kimberley region as her favorite filmmaking experience in her 20-year career. To shoot a cattle drive involving 1,500 beasts, her team used choppers, cablecams and cranes in choking dust. “That was the hardest place to work,” says Walker, thrilled by what her team accomplished. “Temperatures soared to 113 degrees. There was absolutely no infrastructure . We set-up camp for the 200-strong crew, took everything in with us, and at the end of the shoot we packed it up and took it all back out.”
