Here, Fraser, whose credits also include Lion (for which he earned Oscar and BAFTA noms), Mary Magdalene, Vice and Foxcatcher, talks about the challenges of making the ambitious epic, his unique analog/digital approach to the cinematography and working with VFX.

Australian cinematographer Greig Fraser (ACS, ASC), whose film credits include Zero Dark Thirty, Bright Star and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, enjoyed the challenges that came with his latest film, Dune.
