Spotlight: Greig Fraser

Greig Fraser is the visionary director of photography for two of this years most talked about films, the mega-hit and stunningly shot Rogue One, and the beautiful and heartfelt film LION. On the surface these films are drastically different, but Greig considers them surprisingly similar and shares some of his lighting and lensing choices to prove it. Greig and I discuss the challenges of shooting in India, the Arri Alexa 65, the benefits of vintage lenses and why he used the Digital Sputnick LED light on both films
