Hi Roger, the shot you did with Young Boris and Theo on the swing set. Was it all natural lighting? Also I'm curious how you were able to get the sun to align with Theo while he was swinging. Was it intentional or by accident? Did you guys have to plan for the weather when scheduling shooting that scene since it wouldn't really work if it was a cloudy day? Thanks in advance, it's literally one of my favorite shots of all time.

We shot that with available light and we shot very quickly at the end of the day. We had some flexibility as we were shooting interiors nearby. We did have to reschedule the scene as it was very windy and the sand was blowing into everyone's eyes. The swing set was purposely placed to be a the right angle to the setting sun.
