Full name: Richard Francis-Bruce
Birthplace: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Richard Francis-Bruce, born December 10th, 1948, aspired to be a cinematographer like his father, Jack Bruce, who worked for Hollywood players like Cecil B. De Mille and the Famous Lansky Players. Nonetheless, Richard's aspirations landed him an editing gig at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) in Sydney, where he spent 15 years honing his craft.
Richard collaborated with filmmaker George Miller on a plethora of films including The Dismissal (1983), Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985), The Witches of Eastwick (1987), and Lorenzo's Oil (1992). Richard later earned Academy Award nominations for his work on Frank Darabont's The Shawshank Redemption (1994), David Fincher's Se7en (1995) and Wolfgang Peterson's Air Force One (1997). In 1997, Richard was invited to become a member of the American Cinema Editors (ACE).
In 1996, Richard visited Australia and spoke at a seminar at the Australian Film Television and Radio School entitled Frame by Frame. Richard explained the importance of understanding internal and external rhythm as well as the choices he made in and between every shot throughout the film Se7en.
