What it was like working on the project?
It was definitely challenging but really exciting, it was integral to approach this project in a very collaborative way, keeping fluent communication with the directors and client. With such a quick turnaround, I wanted to make sure our character would possess the quality and creativity that it deserved, giving priority to the design of the spider and planning the shoot with directors, first AD and DOP to make the best of our time and avoid future trouble.
In order to achieve and drive everyone into such a emotional view and cinematographic look, we used filming tools such as lenses, camera moves and angles, researching the best photography alongside a detailed composition of multiple layers, playing with depth, scale and FXs to create this breathable, atmospheric and personal habitat in a macro-world were our little friend lives. Approaching the whole process with a small but very organised team was the key.
