No Country for Old Men - Carson Scene (1 reply)

How was such a depth of field achieved in the interior scene with Carson and the banker? It would seem it would need to be shot at T11 or 16.

I would guess this is shot with a focal length between 24mm and 32mm. I would also guess the windows had .9ND or more. Was the interior lit to match the exterior exposure so it could be stopped up?»

That scene was shot on stage with a Translite backing so no NDs. I was shooting at around a 4.0, if my memory serves me well. I wanted a crisp feel to the scene so I lit it to a higher stop than I might have normally.
