Fifty Shades Of Seattle With Rosco SoftDrop

The film Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to the 2015 feature Fifty Shades of Grey and adaptation of the hit novel by E.L. James, was shot in Vancouver – even though the action of the story takes place in Seattle. The filmmakers installed Rosco SoftDrop inside their North Shore Studios sound stage to create the Seattle skyline outside the windows of their set.

John Schwartzman, ASC, the cinematographer for the film, had this to say about the performance of the Day/Night SoftDrop on the production: “It looked real. The colorist couldn’t believe it was a backdrop.”

 

Fifty Shades Darker Production Designer Nelson Coates added: “The range and tonality of image reproduction, combined with the high-quality fabrication and ease of handling during prep & production, have made Rosco’s SoftDrop an invaluable tool in my design arsenal!”
