Together with Thure Lindhardt and Mathias Broe, my role on this project was to create a visual style, a visual movement in colour and light which combined the drama parts with the interviews, as well as took us back in time from 50s to 70s. A style which developed from the first episode to the last one, which I realised together with the creative team, and mainly with our colourist Norman Nisbet through out the entire production. We collaborated together from the early camera tests in pre-production to shaping light atmospheres on the set - to the final stages of the colour correction in post.
