Next to Gibson, Semler is one of the key crew members from the earlier films that I want to see return in Fury Road. His work on both Mad Max 2 & 3 is exemplary, and his filmography since then is filled with movies that are, at the very least, great to look at (Dances with Wolves, Apocalypto, etc). I've yet to see it, but Roland Emmerich's "2012" appears to be another example. Say what you want about the film as a whole, but the scenes I've watched on my TV in Hi-def are visually quite stunning, and critics appear to be unanimous in their praise of how the film looks. Semler appears to be working with all the latest tools available to him. To think that he and Miller came oh so close to filming the Justice League movie together a couple years ago....now that would have been something to see.
I thought perhaps at the age of 66, a grueling 30 week shoot on location might a bit much for him, but I'm sure Emmerich's movie wasn't a walk in the park either. Let's hope that he's already cleared his schedule for Fury Road next year.
