No Film School talks to cinematographer Dylan Sanford, who shot the recent Conan opening sketch which parodied The Walking Dead by perfectly emulating its style.
Explains Sanford, "I’m a fan of The Walking Dead so I had the look in my vocabulary from the start. From my point of view, that show feels like the south to me. Highlights are all a bit sunbleached, greens are lush vibrant, interiors utilize a fair amount of atmosphere while building in contrast with the lighting. There’s strong warm or neutral large-source backlight, generally coming in from low, with a cooler fill. In addition to that, the camera is almost always in motion, but rarely handheld. They use a lot of dolly, steadicam and crane."
