Andrew Droz Palermo on the Go Creative Show

Moon Knight and The Green Knight Cinematography, with Andrew Droz Palermo

Marvel’s MOON KNIGHT and A24’s THE GREEN KNIGHT are filled with original and compelling cinematography thanks to director of photography Andrew Droz Palermo. We do a deep dive into Andrew’s visual approach for both projects.

Andrew and Go Creative Show host, Ben Consoli, discuss why he avoided excessive close up angles, how filming handheld can motivate editing, what no one thinks about when filming in the desert, cinematography tricks to make someone look crazy, and so much more.
