RUE BENNETT:
There’s a couple versions
of what happened that night.
♪ (MUSIC PLAYS) ♪But I’m not always
the most reliable narrator.
What was really cool is shooting
the rotating room scene.I think there’s a lot going on.SAM LEVINSON:I was thinking
about, you know, her drug use,
and how do we depict
the highs of it. ZENDAYA: Sam has these ideas
of like, building these sets
that he wants to do
all these crazy movements.
I get the logic behind it,
but it’s still like fucking insane.
(CHUCKLES) ♪ (MUSIC CONTINUES) ♪ LEVINSON:Marcell Rév,
our cinematographer’s
main concern is,
he’s going, “Well, look, we don’t want to do
motion control and comp in all these people because then, it’s gonna take
all the life out of it. Basically, they built this room
that rotated completely around. LEVINSON:
We built it on a gimbal,
so when Rue walks down
that hallway,
she walks into the bathroom,
she does the drugs,
and as she walks out,
that bathroom breaks away,
which allowed our techno-crane
to basically dolly
into the hallway with her.And we keep her in frameas the entire hallway
starts to rotate around her.
RUE:And then…
the night got weird.
ZENDAYA:
It’s really disorienting,
I think, being in there.
Everything is just spinning,
and you have no senseof where the real world is
in comparison to where you are.
And let’s just say that like,
I’m experiencingthis crazy thing with Rue.The partygoers are literally
strapped to the ground. ZENDAYA: Going upside down
as the room is moving,
I did not envy those peoplebecause they must have had,
like, crazy head rush.The attention to detail
that they paid to this show
and to every single moment in it
is like, extraordinary. We’re being told this story
by a drug addict,so it just allows it to–to go wherever
her mind wants to take it.
There’s so many special things
that this showis going to show you
as it continues to unfold.

    Euphoria hands down have the best cinematography I have ever seen in a show. The way the show is filmed makes you feel like you are in the show and how the camera pans for an actor to actor forced the audience to immerse themselves into the conversations and chaos all happening within the show. Great storyline and acting but the director and cinematography really make this show thrives and I'm obsessed!!!!!

    When I saw this scene in the show, I immediately thought of the set being on a gimble. It reminded me of Star Trek Beyond. But the use of the extras just blew my mind. I've never seen it where the rest of the background actors stayed in place. How they must have felt every time that rig went around?! I don't envy them.

    omg they just casually dropped that the background actors were BOLTED INTO THE GROUND. i was wondering how they did that. the rotating room has been done before (inception) but to have background actors that are stationary throughout is insane. shoutout to zendaya for learning the choreography and timing of each shot though, i can't imagine how you would rehearse that. this show truly deserves their budget, i love the cinematic shots they have through the show too. it still gives that nostalgic teen vibe.

    Cool! So they used same trick inception did for hallway fight but their own lil twist by only her move with it and everyone else stayed right side up. Joseph Gordon Levitt said in bts he had to look at certain spots or get dizzy and/or disoriented. And would walk around in it before they filmed to get use to the movement and moving around in a environment like that. So i would assume they had the same experiences as well
