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. And he just earned his second Oscar nod in the category for his awe-inspiring work on Ang Lee’s 3D adventure drama Life of Pi.
