Lady Gaga, Matthew Liberty, Jack White discussed on The Frame
Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. A star is born has seven Academy Award nominations, including best picture and Bradley Cooper and lady Gaga are nominated in Italy actor categories, another nominees the film's cinematographer, Matthew liberty. His credits include many films with director Baranovsky, including black swan and mother, he also shot the first to ironman movies and last year's marvel movie. Venom a star is born is liberty first real love story behind the camera. That wasn't it's only challenge lady Gaga insisted that she and Cooper performed live in the film and some of their performances were shot in front of real audiences at the stage coach and Glastonbury festivals. I started by asking the batik how they pulled off filming and a real concert setting. This film was very difficult to sort of navigate the stage performances because we had three different modes, basically, we had the Coachella mode, which is bar. Borrowing stages that were already set up with the lighting that was already existing and putting in our own crowds. And then there was the running gun sort of we have ten minutes to shoot in between two sets with a real audience apologizing thanking the audience for sort of shooting a movie in between two bands. And then we had the third which is the Greek theater, which in which shallow was performed where we we actually in more of a movie fashion was able to create the Greek theater as a set, but delighting of it had to have a consistency might my goal was that in creating a character from cinema- cinematography standpoint Jackson main might as well be, oh, I don't know Jack white, and I had to make sure that the audience may be subconsciously felt that this is his leading. This is his road show. And it's also in the film in the sort of visual movement of it a representation of rock and roll in a wanted that to be a signature for Jackson. So the alley had a place to exist within his world. And then sort of moving towards of white light or neutral light of sobriety. When she sings in the NC after all of her ascension. It's hurry birth into what she's meant to become which is what Jack believed in her..
