Matthias Clamer on making a heat wave look like autumn for a recent FX publicity shoot

Matthias Clamer recently shot key art and publicity images for the critically acclaimed FX comedy series The League, but as is often the case, the weather in Southern California did not jibe with the chilly Midwestern concept for the imagery.

“This shoot happened on a 103 Fahrenheit day on a field in the Valley, but the look of the pictures had to be October in Illinois,” Matthias explains. “During the shoot, six PA’s held umbrellas over the actors’ heads every second the camera wasn’t clicking. A water truck kept the field muddy. And the producer issued large gardening straw hats for the crew. As for the skies, I imported some from road trips I’d been on in Montana and Utah.”

The show, which will start its fifth season on the new network FXX on September 4, follows a group of old friends in a fantasy football league who take every opportunity to make each other miserable. Here’s a look at Matthias’ photos…
