An interview with Belinda Parsons, lighting camerawoman in London, England. Parsons got a place on the Fine Art course at Hornsey School of Art for three years and another three years at the National Film and Television School of Beaconsfield. She prefers to work films on slower stocks rather than faster ones and claims that television is her bread and butter. She is planning to do more drama films in the future but she enjoys working between documentary and drama at the same time.
