Clubhouse Conversations — Everything Everywhere All at Once

Cinematographer Larkin Seiple is joined by interviewer M. David Mullen, ASC for this episode about his work on Everything Everywhere All at Once — the multiverse-hopping, action-packed comedic drama from the writer-director duo Daniels.

In Everything Everywhere All at Once, Chinese-American immigrant Evelyn Quan Wang (Michelle Yeoh) discovers the bizarre reality underneath her seemingly mundane existence: That only she can save the world, by journeying to parallel universes that offer glimpses of other lives she might have led. The film marks Seiple's second collaboration with Daniels, following their 2016 feature debut, Swiss Army Man.

In this interview, Seiple discusses creating an eclectic set of looks for the multiple universes shown in the film; his lighting strategies for locations including an IRS facility and the Evelyn character's home; and what went into his collaboration with a second greenscreen unit based in Paris.
