Watch: Cinematographer Yves Belanger Goes Natural on ‘Wild’

Watch: Cinematographer Yves Belanger Goes Natural on 'Wild'

According to cinematographer Belanger, almost every shot in "Wild"—which features a seemingly makeup-free performance by Witherspoon— is done with natural light. Shot for $7 million in Oregon and California, "Wild" is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, whose editors John Mac Murphy and Martin Pensa delicately stitch together Cheryl Strayed’s past and present, which are limned with different colors by Belanger.

Below, he also talks about the most difficult aspects of the shoot, including "not to pass out" during takes. [Variety]
