Variety’s Top 10 Shots of 2017 — #1: “WONDER WOMAN”

“This was one of the first sequences I jumped into on prep, and this was always one of the key images. It’s representative of Wonder Woman’s power and influence. She’s able, with her strength and determination, to reach the Germans at a stalemate when they’re trying to overwhelm her. I don’t think any of us anticipated the emotional reaction the movie would set in motion. We wanted to talk about heroism and choosing love and a belief in humanity as a new stance for a superhero. The subtext is because it hit the world at the right time.” — Director of Photography Matthew Jensen

Variety Top 10 Shots of 2017 - 8) Dunkirk, director of photography: Hoyte van Hoytema.

“It was very stressful because we had one plane to burn and we were shooting it all in the magic hour. We only had one shot at it. It’s always complicated with fire, to get that perfect exposure, but it worked out. I think in some earlier versions it was the last shot of the film, but there might not have been much material from the shot to use. An IMAX camera can only shoot two minutes before you have to reload and every time you reload, the dusk has changed.”
