Crimson Peak cinematographer Dan Laustsen talks to Indiewire about shooting Guillermo del Toro's gothic horror film and highlighting rich color within a dark set.

"Guillermo's approach was to do something very colorful and very dramatic and go old-fashioned," he says. "And I'm very much into this deep, deep shadowing but you still see the set, the wardrobe and the actors. And we went back to the cold steel blue of Mimic for the nighttime and matching that with the very warm amber of the faces. So for me, it was just trying to walk into a new door I hadn't been in for a long time because I've been shooting desaturated."
