How cinematographer Ross Emery made Ridley Scott happy

Ross Emery is a tentpole cinematographer and international Australian. His latest work is Raised by Wolves, part of Ridley Scott's extraordinary world.

Ridley Scott’s Raised by Wolves is a story about androids who protect adults and raise children. It ponders the nature of belief, the contradictory and ambiguous construction of humans and the weird of religion. It is a thread which began with Alien; Bladerunner was also a part of this journey. 

Though this ten-part HBO series was created by Aaron Guzikowski, Ridley Scott is a key producer, directed the first two episodes, and used Scott Free productions to nurture a worldscape and philosophical underpinning that belongs to his expanding vision and personal narrative.
