Cinematographer Hillary Spera was tasked with bringing her unique, thoughtful perspective to the world of The Craft: Legacy.
In Blumhouse’s continuation of the cult hit The Craft, four teenage witches must balance their newfound magical powers with all the drama and dangers of their high school and home lives.
It’s a fresh take on a witchy classic, with a different story, new vibe, and female-forward perspectives.
Hillary Spera served as the film’s director of photography. Her previous work includes TV, documentary, and feature projects like Duck Butter, Band Aid, Miss Americana, and The Package.
She, appropriately for us, did not attend film school.
She took some time ahead of the film’s premiere to talk with No Film School about how she and director Zoe Lister-Jones landed on the film’s look, made the decision to shoot anamorphic, and tackled what was most challenging about the shoot.
