Clubhouse Conversations — She Said

Cinematographer Natasha Braier, ASC, ADF is joined by interviewer Nancy Schreiber, ASC in this episode about her work on She Said — director Maria Schrader’s journalism thriller centered on the reporters who broke the Harvey Weinstein sexual-assault story.

She Said follows the investigative work of New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor (Zoe Kazan) and Meghan Twohey (Carey Mulligan), whose success in uncovering Weinstein's long history of abuse helped catalyze the #MeToo movement and bring about an increased awareness of sexual misconduct in the workplace. The film marks not only the first collaboration between Braier and Schrader, but Schrader's first time directing a Hollywood production.

In this interview, Braier discusses the practical and creative challenges of shooting on location at the New York Times building; how she worked to create depth in white walls; how she manipulated and matched fluorescent lights; and how she created interactive lighting while shooting on the production's car stage.

Natasha Braier, ASC, ADF is an Argentinian cinematographer known for her work on The Rover (2014), The Neon Demon (2016) and Honey Boy (2019).

Nancy Schreiber, ASC is an award-winning cinematographer whose credits include features Your Friends & Neighbors (1998), November (2004) and Mapplethorpe (2018) and TV series P-Valley, The Comeback and Better Things.
