Ridley is very practical and he does love shooting everything in camera. I believe it’s part of his process. He also does rough edits on the go. It was quite an intense set to be on because Ridley shoots very quickly and you have to be flexible and confident in what you’ve built as shots/angels will often change . You can’t go onto a set like Alien: Covenant with Ridley and have anything made to be shot one way because Ridley doesn’t work that way. You know, he’ll change it up so you just have to be flexible. Conor did explain this to me at lengths before filming began.
