The Night Manager cinematographer Michael Snyman talks to Televisual about making the BBC/AMC series look so cinematic on a tight schedule.
“I use both Alexa and Red,” Snyman says of his camera choices. “For me it is about what you want to achieve out of the script and what it demands. The Night Manager was so diverse and vast I really enjoyed using the Red Dragon. There is a certain ‘organicness’ that is created by this camera that I felt would be great for the story. I have had a great relationship with the camera. I can shoot in very low light with the Dragon sensor. I know how the pictures work and how to work them in post -production. We ran two cameras most of the time to get that ‘off angle’ that is so appealing.”
