    Emmy winning cinematographer Baz Idoine has worked on most of The Mandalorian. He is nominated for an Emmy once again for his work on Chapter 13: The Jedi. In a recent interview with Variety, the cinematographer revealed how they created the atmosphere felt in The Jedi while working in a completely digital environment.

    The Mandalorian production team wanted to employ a similar aesthetic to the one Akira Kurosawa used for many of his movies. Dave Filoni, who wrote and directed the episode, is a huge fan of the Japanese filmmaker, whose work has been hugely influential throughout his career. Idoine confirmed this was indeed a big influence for them:


    To come up with the locations for The Mandalorian, they use something they call 'VR scouting.' He said:

    One of the elements necessary for the production design of The Jedi was the creation of the pond that lives inside Morgan Elsbeth's fortress. To do that, they had to bring water into the set, which represented a bit of a challenge. About this, he added:


    Baz Idoine is the credited cinematographer on four episodes of The Mandalorian season 2, including the season premiere and the finale. After winning last year for the photography of Chapter 7: The Reckoning, he is again nominated this year for The Jedi in the category of Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour). We wish him the best. The Emmys will be held next month, in two consecutive days -- on September 18, they will give out the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, and on September 19, they will award the main trophies.
