The two styles evolved during production. "At first," he notes, "the idea was to have a lot of contrast between the two types of footage. Pete had said, 'Go bonkers with the journalistic footage. Let the highlights blow out, let the camera find focus and have the iris adjust.' But then an interesting thing happened as we'd run a scene with the RED on a dolly and it felt like a completely different film. How would you ever piece these things together? And so we met in the middle. We went a little less extreme with the EX1 shots and a little less [clean] with the RED portions. I've seen the completed film twice now and I think that was definitely the right choice. The editors did a bang-up job cutting it together, and so now I think some of those transitions from one style to the other make some of the coolest-looking parts of the movie."
