On June 28, 2020, Local 600 and ICG Magazine launched “Deep Dive”, a virtual panel series in which we talked to the creative teams of union television and film productions. Our first panel with the creative team behind HBOs was "I know so much is true".
The conversation dealt with the unique workflow from filming, an actor playing both leading roles (Mark Ruffalo appears as identical twins), and the many challenges for the camera team that result from a mostly non-written, documentary approach to narrative production . This first virtual panel in Local 600's "Deep Dive" series, featuring guild members and the creatives they work with, builds on ICG Magazine's June / July article on "I Know So Much is True".
