Gareth Edwards Preferred Real Locations And New Camera Technology Brought Freedom With The Shoot The eagerly anticipated sci-fi movie  The Creator, from director Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will hit the cinemas on 28th September and we were lucky enough to attend a press conference for the movie where the director was in attendance.  During the event I wanted to ask about the shooting process.  In the production notes for the movie, Edwards explains how they used new lightweight cameras that gave more freedom when it came to shooting, especially on real-life locations which he preferred to use rather than making sets from scratch.
