In this, the first in the series we’re calling Quick Look, we learn how Ex Machina director, Alex Garland, uses cinematography to create tension and discomfort by ‘crossing the line’.
We look at what ‘crossing the line’ means and how it can be an effective filmmaking technique to compliment character development.
There are a few spoilers in this episode, so if you haven’t seen Ex Machina, starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander, watch the film and then come back and join in the discussion.
