Hey guys,

 

I was wondering which focal lengths you think are being used in the shots below (let's assume an S35 sensor):

I'm going to say, 12mm, 32mm & 24mm respectively.  Do you know the answer?  The first image could be a rectilinear 8mm lens.

Actually I don't know the answer, but I was curious. I remember reading somewhere that Lubezki used some very wide lenses on this project and had the camera placed close to the actors to create this distortion of reality. I used a 16mm full frame lens on a S35 camera last week and it was wide, but I still couldn't get some of the more extreme looks of that film.
