Visual references for No Country for Old Men (4 replies)
Hi Mr Deakins,
You have said before that you often collect a variety of different visual references before shooting. So I'm wondering what your references we're for No Country for Old Men, as it has such a striking and raw imagery.
I don't remember getting any references for that film. I searched for a lot of references when in prep for 'BR 2049' but I don't always feel the need to do that.
Thanks for getting back to me. What kinds of references were there for 'BR 2049'? Any imagery you found most useful?
I've read the Las Vegas scenes are inspired by the 2009 dust storm in Australia.
Yes, Australia and the Haboob dust storms of the Middle East.
