'Longmire' DPs Explain the Key to Shooting a Modern Western

Publish date:

Netflix's Longmire is a Western through and through and the cinematographers of the show, including Jim Muro and Cameron Duncan, have embraced the genre to create the show's look.

"Jim [Munro] established the style and look when he shot the pilot. In the first year, it was a hybrid of our previous show, Southland, and the classic western film genre," Duncan tells ICG Magazine. "We incorporated a lot of handheld and active camera movements on sliders and jibs, often juxtaposed with big wide still frames. We used a chocolate filter the entire season to add warmth. Our interior Sheriff Station is plenty warm from the set design so I pulled the Chocolate filter, which helps with the stop and then bumped the color temp on the camera to 4100K.”
