“From the outset, we decided to use the IMAX format for several entire passages of the film, such as the visions of Paul, the dream and desert scenes. […] We also shot the desert sequences on the shoulder but the rest of this universe was mostly meant to evoke a painting, and that’s how we approached it, ” says cinematographer Greig Fraser in the film’s press kit.
