Geektown Radio 146: ‘Counterpart’ Cinematographer Luc Montpellier UK TV News & UK TV Air Dates!

It’s that time of the week for brand new Geektown Radio podcast with all your usual tv news and airdate information, and another great interview, this time with Counterpart Cinematographer Luc Montpellier.

Luc is an award-winning Canadian cinematographer who shot Starz’s new science fiction thriller ‘Counterpart’ starring J.K. Simmons. The show stars Simmons as Howard Silk, a cog in a seemingly innocuous UN agency, who discovers that they are actually guarding a path into a parallel dimension… ‘Counterpart’ has yet to land a UK air date, but it has already got a 2nd season and is getting great reviews. It looks to be a brilliant high concept sci-fi drama, so fingers crossed it gets picked up over here soon!

Luc’s other recent work includes Universal Channel’s ‘Flashpoint’ and the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ television event which aired on Sky Movies last year. He has also worked on ‘Battle Creek’ with household names such as ‘Breaking Bad’s’ Vince Gilligan, and ‘House’ & ‘The Good Doctor’s’ David Shore.

Luc notably lent his craft to the critically acclaimed miniseries ‘Hemingway vs. Callaghan’, which earned him a Genie Award for Best Photography, as well as Actor/Director Sarah Polley’s Academy Award-nominated ‘Away from Her’. Additionally, he’s worked on a number of indie films including the TIFF and Directors Guild of Canada award winner ‘Cairo Time’, and ‘Soul Cages’, which earned Luc the award for Best Cinematography in a Dramatic Short from the Canadian Society of Cinematographers.
