Chilean cinematographer Claudio Miranda worked as a gaffer on Seven, The Game and Fight Club, before getting a promotion and earning raves as the director of photography on David Fincher's film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Miranda’s impressive work resulted in on the Brad Pitt-starrer becoming the first entirely digitally filmed movie nominated for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography and an American Society of Cinematographers Award.
