BR2049 out of focus shot (2 replies)
Why did you roger made both conversation out of focus for this particular shot. Booking pot only focused.
Not Roger here but I feel the conversation is out of focus just to draw attention to the pot. The boiling pot is a representation of the tension rising in the scene as Gosling's character begins talking to the man.
We storyboarded this angle and, on the day, I reduced my camera stop to get K as out of focus as possible. We wanted the feeling of K being slightly alien in nature and this focal effect seemed to do just that.
