To all the fans of Game of Thrones who have been complaining regarding the darkness of the third episode which featured the “Battle for Winterfell”, the cinematographer of the show has some words of wisdom to share.
Fabian Wagner, who is the cinematographer for ‘The Long Night’ says that the fans don’t know how to watch the show and the episode in particular. They(fans) don’t know how to tune the TV for better viewing. Continuing further, he also slammed the fans and said that the war is made for big screen experience and watching in small screens of the phones or tablets are not exactly going to come across as thrilling.
The episode aptly titled ‘The Long Night’ happens entirely in the night, and since it was a war that was happening, the makers wanted something unique and never seen before cinematography wise. They intentionally went in for a dark tinted tone, clarifies Fabian Wagner.
Five days have passed since the episode, and we have already got a glimpse of what is in store next. Fans have moved on, albeit grudgingly. There is still a lot at stake, and from what one saw, the cinematography doesn’t look like posing any problem. Here’s hoping that is the case as we are now getting into the final three episodes.
