I just watched this last night for the very first time. A great film with a very tender story, excellent acting and stunning cinematography.
David - I've been searching the archives for the answers to a few questions I have for you. For one thing, all of the exteriors were absolutely stunning. Did you add anything to the opening sunrise/sunset shots or was that all natural light? Looked like natural light to me.
Also, I was very curious as to how you lit the rocket in these shots:
Finally, I loved the saturated colors. They felt like a visual homage to the very vibrant period in America history when the actual NASA Space Program was in its glory. It also seemed to be the visual depiction of what Farmer later says about "dreams." Anyway, I was just wondering if you used any warming filters to create that effect.
Great work as always, David! I think this one just became my favorite of all your works.
