Cinematographer's  Preview / Reel from the series (2min)

My role on this project was to create a visual style, a visual movement in colour and light which combined the drama parts set back in the 40s to 70s with the current day interviews. A style which I developed with the director, with our creative team, and mainly with our colourist Norman Nisbet. 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.
