This was DP Donald M. McAlpine's first experience using the Super 35 format on a feature film, although it was used for the visual effects for Moulin Rouge! (2001). His previous films before this one were shot in the Panavision (anamorphic) format. He says that "[anamorphic is] a better cinematic experience. People know they're not watching TV. Even a comedy like Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), I think, was a better film because it was shot anamorphically. For The Chronicles of Narnia, they wanted me to shoot Super 35 because of the amount of visual effects involved. They wanted the freedom to move within the frame. And the DI, by removing that optical step, eliminates a lot of the problems. It looks magnificent." See more »
