The thing that most worries me about the look of I am Evangeline is ordinary daylight. You can do exciting stuff with darkness, and the new digital cameras are so incredible at capturing just the smallest amount of light that even on little money we can do some great looking stuff. But outdoors is a different story.
I desperately don’t want it to look like TV. Because no one gets out a film and wants to see what they could see every day of the week. They want to see something bold and different. That’s why I chose winter to shoot in, even though it will be hideous for all of us. Because that nasty lowering Melbourne winter sky had least has a skerrick of atmosphere. I admit it, I love English grey skies. Blame it on growing up in NZ in the 70s, we ate British drama for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
