DP Andrew Droz Palermo said, When Magic presents, Nothing Goes, The Green Knight

He told Variety that before shooting David Lowerys medieval fantasy, The Green Knight, which screens this week at EnergaCamerimage Film Festival, cinematographer Andrew Droz Palermo watched any King Arthur movie he could find, a tv reporter told the Variety.

Even though these films always seem gray, desaturated, we wanted something modern, also when it comes to the casting of Dev Patel as the lead.

As Gawain leaves Camelot, forcing to take the challenge out, Droz Palermo turned to Apocalypse Now as inspiration, gaining some similarities between his ordeal and that of Mary Sheens Captain Willard.

As far as the film goes, it's not a lot of people think he died, but it doesn't make any sense for me, despite the fact that i am in love with the use of colour and lighting.

I really wanted this feeling before the end of this movie.

After the tragic death of her lover, The Green Knight marks the second collaboration for Droz Palermo and Lowery, which earned notoriety after A Ghost Story, which became popular in a few minutes after the death by Rooney Mara, who devoured ice cream and scream.

I understood the value of that shot in A Ghost Story. You can really go somewhere with her grief, he says.

I noticed the subtleties of Devs performance. You can see that his pride wringing away.

The film was always more frequent.

In A Ghost Story time would accelerate. Until now, a hundred years ago, Gawain climbed to the Green Chapel and grew he into tyre. That felt very similar and it felt my favorite part. I love the amount it is said without mentioning one word.

Gawain's surprise encounters on his way to meet his match posed a tonal challenge, says Droz Palermo, who admits that originally the film should be more comedic.

Having decided to open with Dev, he would go down a spiral staircase, and the church bells ringing, Christmas would be like, then if shit, then whoever would look into the lens and wink. He is true, but just thinks that - naive.

It was very funny when he met the Lord and the Lady, and it shook the air, so it seemed like it was a great movie. The film is full of aggression, despite the fact that the scene of their farewell is teetered on comedy. I think the film, which is written by Joel Edgerton and Alicia Vikander, is very good at producing. It feels like if it wasn't able to jot down, but I appreciate it because it's

Although the medieval setting was very modern, ecology added a nice layer to the film, says Droz Palermo, citing images of deforested areas and people falling trees.

He notes that it is modernity at its worst.

It was something we talked about: How can we make Camelot grayer? There is nothing living inside it and even King Arthur is rotting, he is at the end of his reign. But in the first frame you see a little green creeping in. Its still going to come, no matter how much you try to push it back.

But the magical aspect of Gawains story really caught his attention, giving him more freedom.

He says that When magic happens, everything goes. Thats a fun place, he says, expressing his appreciation for the work of the production designer and the costume designer who tasked herself with making all the costumes out of vegan materials.

I like to paint in the world they have already created.
