The Duffer Brothers liked Ives' work on Girls, the Mr. Robot pilot and House of Cards and selected him as director of photography shortly after the show was green-lit by Netflix. Ives received their pitch package which he found "amazingly well defined," commenting that "I hadn’t seen anything like this concept in a while."[1]
