‘Gotham’ DP Crescenzo Notarile on Being Inspired by Surrealism and Comic Books

Gotham DP Crescenzo Notarile talks to Filmmaker Magazine about his Emmy-nominated work on Gotham.

They were very exaggerated, very pronounced — high angles looking down, low angles looking up, close-ups of the characters that exaggerated their faces like a fish-eye wide-angle lens. So I tried to bring those elements to the table a little more than what the show had been doing.”
