Cinematography of Win or Lose

Patrick Lin, Brian Boyd


Win or Lose is Pixar's first original, longform Disney+ streaming production. The 8 episode series follows a middle school softball team in the week leading up to their championship game. Each episode is told from the perspective of different characters over the same one-week period. Since the series is all about perspectives, our cinematography is structured and designed to help differentiate between the real world and our characters' perspective world. Combining a hyper realistic camerawork with a stylized lighting design, this juxtaposition between camera and lighting adds emotional impact to the unique visual style of the series.
