Sir Ridley Scott is up there for me as a filmmaker; the Apple Mac ad for the Superbowl in 1984; Alien; Blade Runner and, of course, Gladiator, which won five; Oscars in 2001. I must have watched Gladiator at least 20 times, but there is one Ridley Scott movie that has prompted me in my work more than any other; and that, of course, is Thelma & Louise, which inspired the location to tell our own road trip story.; Ridley's camera dived into the pages of a road trip storybook and coupled vivid cinematography with a character rich narrative. At all times he showed that he; was fully in command of his medium and in so doing reminded us of the grandeur and majesty of the American West.; His vignettes of Arches National Park in Utah were shot with picturesque sentimentality and were the defining moments of the film. I have long wished to; shoot there, but out of respect for him, I knew my narrative could not be lame.; Cara Delevingne and I work together regularly these days, and I knew there could be no more powerful lead in this story.; The rest was up to good fortune and in particular the light. We shot in early March when we could secure road permits by the iconic organ rock which features; in the film. But the weather had to play ball and the forecast the previous night looked unpromising. However, at 7.10 am the next day, there was a shaft of full; on light and we had our moment.; Cara smashed it - but always does. Cara is unique. The frame is as good as we can do and the reward for many hours of negotiation and contemplation. I hope; Ridley Scott will approve.; This image features the rare Tamaskan dog breed - genetically almost identical to a wolf
