Hi,

 

I was just reading the the DP James Laxton's interview.

"Filmmaker: There are so many shots I’d love to ask you about because it’s such a beautifully photographed movie, but we’re running a little bit short on time so let’s just do one more. How about this pair of close-ups where Black and Kevin stare right down the lens at each other when they reconnect after a decade?

Laxton: We relied again on those LiteMat 4’s covered with unbleached muslin to give the light that warm, soft quality and that’s what you see reflected as the eyelights in their eyes. As for the down-the-barrel perspective, it was to create this immersive experience that we were hoping for, to create a first-person perspective where an audience feels that they belong inside the film."

 

 

Is 'down-the-barrel perspective' means looking directly into lens?

 

Wondering if any of you can share opinions?

 

-Collins
