Twin Peaks: The Return

I recently had the remarkable experience shooting several scenes for Showtime’s new Twin Peaks series with director David Lynch and “Log Lady” actress Catherine Coulson. Guided by a few brief conversations with the series cinematographer Peter Deming, I worked with a small Ashland-based crew to serve as Director of Photography for all of the Log Lady sequences for this new season.

I had previously worked with Coulson on the movies Calvin Marshall and Redwood Highway, as well as several smaller projects. She not only was a gifted actress, working regularly with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, but had been a camera operator and assistant camera on movies like Night on Earth, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn, and Eraserhead, among others.

The experience of working with Lynch and Coulson – shooting in her Ashland home only days before she passed away – made for an unforgettable evening. Twin Peaks: The Return is now airing on Showtime and available on Blu-Ray/DVD.
