Hi,

I am just wondering how the got the 'glowing whites' in bring out the dead? I have heard that it is by massivily over-exposing areas of the image. is this how it is done? are there any filters used? If any one knows or has any idea please let me know.

Thanks

Most of the movie was shot with a net, which you can see the pattern of (in the ovals of lights) in this telephoto shot:

On other movies, Richardson used ProMist diffusion and there may be some scenes in this movie where he did that as well.

But it's any diffusion combined with intense overexposure of small areas of the frame using spotty lamps like narrow-spot PAR64's or HMI's with spot lenses, and then exposing for the bounce off of the object and letting the center of the spot go several stops overexposed that creates the blooming effect.
