Before production of Darren Aronofsky's

mother!

commenced, the director and cinematographer Matty Libatique rehearsed the film's camera movements with the cast in a warehouse.

"Libatique said that Aronofsky’s camera movement has increasingly become more subjective since making

The Wrestler

, but the strategy for

mother!

was more extreme,"

Chris O'Falt explains.

"The camera would stay physically connected to the mother character the whole movie. The language of the film would essentially be limited to three types of handheld shots that followed [Jennifer] Lawrence around the house: singles on mother, over-the-shoulder (connecting mother to her surroundings), and point-of-view shots showing what mother sees.

"Like the director's previous films, mother! is like a tea kettle slowly being brought to a boil as Aronofsky mounts the pressure with clockwork-like precision. Considering the self-imposed constraints of the film's strict subjective and handheld style, this made the warehouse rehearsals vital."
