Inside the Screen: Be Amazed By The Set Production of Legion
Channeling our inner movie addict, Legion tv series has debuted in February and has masterfully gotten our minds and perspectives in a twist. This Marvel future dystopian story is about to blow your mind. With a lot of help from the set production, this FX tv series will capture you in a motion of aesthetic influences in every episode.
Today we’re going to talk about how Legion, the super baby of FX has conquered its place in the hearts of the audience and how its aesthetic influences everything around itself.
Legion has been in our inner circle of TV shows since the beginning of the year. Based on the acclaimed comic book by Marvel, this enticing story has so many ups and downs, plot twists and action just as much that is having its touch of glamor and candidness.
Michael Wylie, responsible for set design production, explains that Legion doesn’t really have a style. It’s purpose it’s for the audience to understand what the main character, David, is really feeling. That’s why it has so many influences. Since a touch of Amelie, an applauding movie, to A Clockwork Orange, a masterpiece.
Michael Wylie is no stranger when it comes to Marvel works. Having already worked with another amazing character that is Agent Carter, he explains that Legion has a touch of Kubrick’s production design and cinematography.
It’s only understandable when you’re working with Noah Hawley, one of the series directors, that already knew what he wanted for this show to get the appraise it deserves.
Michael also explains that Noah Hawley is very peculiar in this type of thing. “He made a ‘lookbook,’ which he gave me at my job interview. It was awesome.” Wylie explains.
The joy that must have been to work with this spectacular crew. This Marvel dystopian story brings all the freshness and diversity that we were looking for. From open spaces to small places crowded with flying objects, everything was thought out. In a recent interview, Michael Wylie explained that “We did stuff for no other reason than because it looked cool. There was a freedom to design things for pure aesthetic joy.”
One of the aspects that they focused the most was the lighting part. This totally can be seen in the Clockworks scheme of things. Wylie explains that for Clockworks footage, they even installed nearly 200 LED lighting fixtures in the ceilings to control color, brightness, and temperature. “When you can do whatever you want,” said Wylie, “it doesn’t matter if it’s right or not. It’s incredibly free and liberating.”
It’s safe to say that you have it all with this wonderful piece of television production. Romance, action, suspense, great designs… So what are you waiting for? Go check out this amazing world!
