DOP Kenneth Ishii on his camera and lens choices:
“I wanted to use anamorphic lenses for this film and preferably some with interesting flare, all in the good spirit of many sci-fi classics. I got a bit lucky because the rental company had just received a set of Cooke Anamorphic/i SF (Special Flair) and we became one of the first customers to try them out. I think they deliver a great balance between a high-end look and at the same time having their own character. Camera was the ever trustworthy Alexa Mini. ”
