There’s one scene at the start of Phantom Thread where Reynolds (Daniel Day-Lewis) meets Alma (Vicki Kriep) at a cafe in a village, in this particular shot we see both characters framed in the wide shot inside the cafe, whilst able to see the landscape through a window.
Does anyone know how Paul Thomas Anderson and his team were able to create such a shot? Did they overlight the cafe and bring it down in post to match the outside, or did they wait for the weather outside to be dim enough to see it? It’s not only contained to this specific shot as well, but rather a sequence where we see Reynolds walk into the cafe, we pan with him, and see the landscape through all the windows.
I’ve attached the particular shot in this message, and this is the link for the full scene in YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJ-OfdVU1CM&t=16s
Thank you all for your time!
