You know on the raw effects footage on the DVDs, you see the clapperboards for some of the shots? Well, included on these clapperboards are the words “CAMERA – P. TYLER”. And we’ve got hold of P. Tyler.
Peter (to give him his full first name) was the Director of Photography for the model shots on Dwarf, and he has very kindly provided us with this interview, which gives fascinating titbits of information about the production of the visual effects, as well as Peter’s opinions on the series and on the industry in general. He also gave us some lovely pictures, taken from his own archives, for which we thank him from the bottom of our rehydration units. He’s a smashing bloke.
But he’s wrong about the planet pool sequence.
