Analog meets digital.
The modern relationship between the old and the new, in "All of Us Strangers", with cinematographer Jamie D. Ramsay, gaffer Warren Ewen and colorist Joseph Bicknell.
In ‘All of Us Strangers’, written and directed by Andrew Haigh, and selected in the main competition at Camerimage, the protagonist, whilst being an orphan, goes back to his parents’ home and reconnects with them, in an uncertain place between reality, dream, and fantasy.
To support this narrative and convey such ambiguous feelings, cinematographer Jamie D. Ramsay, SASC, chose to shoot analog. He explains, “film represents an organic feeling of nostalgia, which we wanted to juxtapose with digital technology, one of its instances being the use of LEDs background and on-set previsualization with Unreal Engine. It was meant to perpetuate the sense of not quite being real, not quite being a dream.”
Together with his long-standing collaborators Warren Ewen and Joseph Bicknell, Jamie will detail how virtual production and other combinations of traditional tools and cutting-edge technologies helped tell the film’s story.
