Internationally acclaimed cinematographer LASZLO KOVACS, A.S.C., most recently photographed "My Best Friend's Wedding," starring Julia Roberts. His American work began with such seminal motion pictures as "Easy Rider," "Five Easy Pieces," "That Cold Day in the Park" and "The Last Movie." He has photographed more than 60 motion pictures, most notably "What's Up, Doc?," "The King of Marvin Gardens," "Paper Moon," "For Pete's Sake," "Shampoo," "Nickelodeon," "New York, New York," "Butch and Sundance: The Early Years," "Frances," "The Toy," "Ghostbusters," "Mask," "Legal Eagles" and "Radio Flyer."

Kovacs, along with close friend and compatriot Vilmos Zsigmond, escaped from his native Hungary during the 1956 Soviet invasion, smuggling out the first filmed footage of the occupation to be seen in the Western world. He worked as a still photographer and a cinematographer on commercials, documentaries and industrial films before breaking into features.
