Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema shot on 70 mm and IMAX.

Tenet Making Images
One of the biggest aspects for us in pre-pro was defining the look of the forward and backward effects. We had sections that were shot in reverse in the camera so that when they were shown reversed, they would be going forward. – Andrew Jackson (TENET VFX Supervisor).
The visual side of TENET is huge, but our VFX shot count is probably lower than most romantic comedies. [Lame estimates < 300 shots] We tried a lot of methods during shooting for portraying various time aspects and Jen would sift through to see what worked – Christopher Nolan.
