Biography by Sandra Brennan

British cinematographer John Alcott began his film career in the 1960s as a focus puller ( an assistant to the cameraman responsible for adjusting the lens when the camera is following action and for measuring distances between the camera and the subject in a traveling shot). By the 1970s Alcott had become a distinguished lighting director whose work is most notable on Clockwork Orange (1971), and Barry Lyndon (1975).
