To create that contemporary tone, Soderbergh shot the vast majority of the show hand held. “I wanted it to feel like it was happening right now,” he says. “I wanted the aesthetic to be participatory. It’s not an approach you identify with a period film.” Soderbergh used RED cameras with the new “Dragon” sensor, which he describes as “super sensitive,” to accommodate working at low light levels–the gore and drama were shot with almost all natural light. Some sets were built with practical light fixtures, but “there wasn’t a lot of augmentation,” he says. “Every once in a while an actor would walk onto the set and say, ‘Are you guys bringing any light in?’” he laughs. “And we’d go, ‘No, that’s it.” All of which led to a strange phenomenon in the editing suite–looking at closeups, Soderbergh said he was plagued by the weird, undefined sensation that . … [Read more...] about Bloody Hell: Steven Soderbergh Dissects His Modern, 1900s Medical Drama, “The Knick”

A major consequence has been marine heat waves causing a dramatic loss of marine life—everything from phytoplankton to whales, and at least 100 million cod, researchers say. But even though a relatively small fraction of the heat has affected our atmosphere and land, global warming has still led to an increase in catastrophic fires like those in the Amazon and Australia, and more intense storms like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Florence, which each caused upwards of 50 deaths and tens of billions in economic damage. … [Read more...] about The ocean is as hot as if we’d dropped 3.6 billion atomic bombs into it
