Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a historic movie. The movie was written by Celine Scimma.
Portrait of a Lady on Fire
When director Celine Sciamma visualised the sea-windswept Brittany than it defined the setting and environment of “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” and also she hoped a little bit different than what she got in her earlier. Additionally, the director told that they went there because they need the grey sky and that was so sunny. They also felt that it was good for the movie. That would be a unique one.
There was a challenge for both the director and cinematographer Claire Mathon for how to bring that shining one back inside the movie. But the movie was shot in Brittany, where they had to put more external actions as it inside the 18th-century castle. Finally, they got that which is located in the Parisian suburb. This has used for weeding and lavish events and it didn’t resort one also. But, it couldn’t touch by anyone which is decorated with paint, texture and colour which was perfect for it.
Discussion about the shot and behind the scenes of the movie
According to Mathon that there was a long discussion about the set because Celine needs a big set as the shot was longer. But, they picked that one which was so wonderful and motivated. The dimension, existing materials and colour along with the decoration was so beautiful one which was fitted for the movie. Additionally, Mathon had needed a big deal about light.
Finally, her shots were limited one so they didn’t make complicated one and hang the lights where they wanted as it was a historical one.
Further, Sciamma told that the lighting part took a lot of time and that was difficult one and within a very short time they had to finish the shots.
Unfortunately, Mathon worked so well on that and the lights were invisible which was magic. There hadn’t any light in that room and it was so specific.
