Robert Yeoman describes how he shot several scenes in Wes Anderson’s films

I’ve blogged about Wes Anderson’s cinematographer Robert Yeoman before but here’s a great in-depth look at how he shot several scenes, like this reflection on Hotel Chevalier:

“There’s a scene where she [Natalie Portman] and Jason Schwartzman are lying on the bed, and there’s a backlight on them but I didn’t have anything to fill them in, so I just took a pillowcase and put it over the lens to bounce light back into their faces,” chuckles Yeoman. “I enjoy shooting that way. We came up from low-budget independent movies where you never had the money and you were forced to come up with your own homemade solutions to things, and that’s pretty much what Chevalier was all about.”
