@GameOfThrones #Cinematographer: It’s Not Me, It’s Your TV Settings — We Agree

New York (The Verge) — Game of Thrones cinematographer says TVs are dark and full of errors theverge.com/tldr/2019/4/30….

You’re the problem, and also maybe HBO’s bitrate

There was plenty of fire to go around, but for the most part, the episode was a flurry of hard-to-see action taking place in poorly lit environments. Even die-hard fans were complaining en masse.

Know that the decision to film the episode in such a fashion was a purposeful one, according to cinematographer Fabian Wagner, and he blames your TV settings or the quality of your screen if you had trouble making out what was happening. After all, Wagner says the show was directed and shot like a cinematic experience that could be viewed in a movie theater, even though it’s predominantly streamed at compressed quality to screens of all shapes and sizes.
