American Cinematographer’s Jim Hemphill talks with The Conjuring cinematographer John R. Leonetti, ASC about creating an ultra-realistic feeling for the horror movie by shooting the set as is it were a location. Leonetti also discusses how the frequent use of a wide-angle lens enhances the audience’s feeling of tension and unease, and how he used the post process to transform some of the high-res digital footage into 16mm-style images.
