EoM contributor Thomas Manning recently interviewed cinematographer Andrew Droz Palermo about his work on the Marvel Studios series Moon Knight.
Over the course of this 20-minute conversation, Palermo speaks about the challenges of working with a visual style that relies so heavily on reflections, the on-location filming in Budapest, and capturing Oscar Isaac’s idiosyncratic performance.
When Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life, he discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
Moon Knight airs weekly on Disney+ beginning March 30th, 2022.
