Roger Deakins Knighthood New Years Honours List
The humble and very talented Skyfall (2012) cinematographer Roger Deakins has been awarded a knighthood for his services to film in Queen Elizabeth II's New Years Honours List 2021. Overall, there were 1,239 recipients of honours in the list, with 803 recognised for work in their communities.

James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said:

“Roger is truly a great visionary of our time. His cinematography always brings depth and humanity to the screen. His uncompromising commitment to the work is unparalleled, he is a wonderful collaborator. We feel incredibly privileged that he created the stunning visual identity of Skyfall. Many, many congratulations to a great master.”

In 2012, Roger Deakins discussed going digital with the ARRI ALEXA on In Time (2011) and Skyfall. He also explained more about his thoughts on image quality, Master Prime lenses and ALEXA'S optical viewfinder. At the end, Deakins spoke about the IMAX blow-up for Skyfall, the 'resolution race' and texture in his images.
