When cinematographer Geoffrey Hall, ACS (Chopper, Red Dog: Escape from Pretoria) was asked to shoot Halifax: Retribution, a reboot of the popular Australian TV crime drama series, Halifax f.p. that ran from 1994-2001 on Channel Nine, he saw it as a challenge. “The original series always had exceptionally high production values – it was a quality show that enjoyed a good budget and featured the best actors,” said Hall. “For the new show, I wanted to carry on that feeling of quality and give it a big, glossy look. I was after a look that would put the series in a class of its own.”
