i am doing this thing for work this week about star wars

so to refresh my memory and to stir up ideas i got the original trilogy because i dont think ive seen it in its entirety in quite a while.

for some reason i was looking at it trying to think of the camerawork and lighting in 1976. what was that like? how were they able to show us something very modern using mostly common equipment.

and why are there only one set of shadows on a planet that has two suns?

right before Luke, Han, Ben and the crew go into the bar there are long shadows

but on the way there it seems like it’s high noon

issues that would not happen in a digital, almost entirely computer generated film

but when filmed on actual film, it would take forever to clean up those inaccuracies.
