Clubhouse Conversations — Homecoming Season 2

Unit photography by Ali Goldstein/Amazon Studios

Cinematographer Jas Shelton discusses his camerawork in Season 2 of this Amazon Prime Video psychological thriller with interviewer Charlie Lieberman, ASC. 


The first season of Homecoming was based on a podcast of the same name created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg. Season 2 of this suspense drama deviates from the podcast and features a new story with mostly new characters. It follows Jackie (Janelle Monáe) after she wakes up to find herself floating in a boat in a lake with no memory of who she is or how she ended up there.


Born in Texas, Shelton served as an electrician and gaffer before shooting the comedy drama feature Cyrus. He followed this by photographing the comedies Keanu, The House and Like a Boss. His television credits include Dating Rules from My Future Self, Togetherness and the pilot of Jean-Claude Van Johnson.


A native of Chicago, Lieberman is a self-taught cinematographer who learned on the job while shooting documentaries, shorts and industrial films before photographing his first feature, the horror classic Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer. After relocating to Los Angeles, he began working in television, shooting a series of stand-out network series, including My So-Called Life, Once and Again, Joan of Arcadia and Heroes. He is also the chair of the ASC Photo Gallery committee.
