Deep Dive #1 | I Know This Much Is True

On June 28, 2020, Local 600 and ICG Magazine launched “Deep Dive,” a virtual panel series where we chat with the creative teams of union television and film productions. Our first panel was with the creative team behind HBO’s “I Know This Much Is True.”

The conversation delved into the unique, shot-on-film workflow, one actor playing both leading roles (Mark Ruffalo appears as identical twins), and the many challenges for the camera team created by a mostly unscripted, docudrama approach to a narrative production. This first virtual panel in Local 600’s “Deep Dive” series, featuring Guild members and the creatives they work with, links up with ICG Magazine’s June/July article on “I Know This Much Is True.”
