Is there a special reason for students wearing ‘green’ school uniforms in the Netflix series ‘All of Us Are Dead’?
On January 26, Netflix released a video of the production process of ‘All of Us Are Dead‘ on YouTube. In the video, director Lee Jae Gyu, who was in charge of directing ‘All of Us Are Dead‘, appeared in person and released several behind-the-scenes stories.
First of all, director Lee Jae Gyu said, “We have mobilized various mechanisms so that even those who do not watch a lot of zombie movies can enjoy ‘All of Us Are Dead‘. “
“At first, the school space was a fresh and lively space, and I was trying to expose it and show it.” He said,
“I thought a lot about lighting and artistic colors in various places. We built a close-set,” he explained.
He also explained why the school uniform in the drama was green, saying, “I tried to give a little more intensity through the contrast of the red blood and the children’s school uniforms, and the complementary colors (here, red and green).”
As the director intended, almost every episode of ‘All of Us Are Dead‘ shows students wearing green school uniforms and bleeding.
Through the complementary color action of red and green, viewers can immerse themselves in the drama with greater contrast while looking at the screen.
Director Lee also said, “I used a lot of one-take shots and long take shots in the beginning to give a sense of realism.” As an example of a typical long-take shot, a scene in which a swarm of zombies invaded a food court was selected. It is said that the scene was filmed in one take after rehearsing all day.
Meanwhile, ‘All of Us Are Dead‘ is gaining popularity not only in Korea but also around the world.
According to Flix Patrol, an online content service ranking site on the 31st, ‘All of Us Are Dead‘, released in January 28, took first place with a total of 803 points in the world’s top 10 rankings for Netflix TV programs within the second and third days after its release.
