Greig Fraser, ACS, ASC, explores dark new worlds for Denis Villeneuve’s newest incarnation of Frank Herbert’s celebrated novel, Dune.

Denis Villeneuve, a fan of the book since his teens, eagerly seized the reins for this new incarnation, which covers roughly the first half of the novel. Villeneuve re-teamed with several past collaborators, including Editor Joe Walker, Production Designer Patrice Vermette, Special Effects Supervisor Gerd Nefzer and VFX Supervisor Paul Lambert. Joining them was Oscar-nominee Greig Fraser, ACS, ASC, who had filmed his share of desert worlds for Disney’s The Mandalorian [ICG Magazine April 2020], though those employed virtual production instead of the extensive location work utilized for Dune.
