'Gravity' Cinematographer Reveals How He Got Those Astonishing Shots
"The only thing that Alfonso Cuaron requested was that he wanted to start with a brightly lit Earth, and that when we see Earth and the shuttle, we are not telegraphing that something nasty is going to happen," says Lubezki of Gravity's opening shot, created using mostly virtual cinematography and CG. "The light is friendly in the beginning of the movie, and during that shot it becomes more complex and more threatening and more dynamic. It starts to change when the camera goes into her helmet, and you see dusk and sunset. When we designed it, I thought about one of my favorite cinematographers, Vittorio Storaro, and how he used lighting changes in his movies."
