Jessica Lee Gagné and Chris Teague

A revealing look inside the FX on Hulu miniseries, Mrs. America with Jessica and Chris explaining how a mix of lenses, the VENICE full frame sensor and LUTs helped bring a 1970s look to the show. Jessica reveals how she shot two conflicted sides of the show, using a pastel, bright kind of environment to portray one group and a much warmer sun, more contrast environment for the other. The cinematographers also explain how a film-like look with highlights, shadows and film grain were achieved on VENICE.

Every film or show, whatever I do, I always test several cameras. When put up on the screen with my colourist Tom we just knew that the Sony was up there. The skin tones were more defined.
