Finding Inspiration in the Photochemical Process for the Digitally Shot ‘While We’re Young’

While We’re Young cinematographer Sam Levy talks to Filmmaker Magazine about getting inspired by the ’70s for the Noah Baumbach film.

They’re both shot digitally, but inspired by the look of the photochemical process.”
