Lesson 1 - Observation
For this first lesson, I chose a new one - *The Green Knight. I realize that Andrew Droz Palermo wasn't on the list of cinematographers but seeing as I'm a bit late to the class I'd give this new film a go. The imagery alone has been occupying my mind since its release. ADP's work on Ghost Story also did from the past - quite frankly so do a lot of other A24 films (Ex Machina, another I want to study further using Sweeney's techniques).
From the otherworldly and psychedelic visuals to the atmosphere and mood of the Green Knight, nothing seemed quite out of place. There are so many shots I want to deconstruct but decided to start with just a few.
*Since The Green Knight is fairly new - potential spoilers ahead
