"I feel with this camera the look is natural in the way it renders colour and the way it renders flesh tones."
Behind The Scenes Video
Dig is a short film produced for the European launch of the Sony PWM-F55 camera. It was premiered at the Camerimage Film Festival in Poland on 28th November 2012.
It was shot in 4K RAW and posted in DaVinci Resolve. Approximately 115 set-ups were shot in a 3-day shoot and speaking to Film & Digital Times, Cinematographer Steve Lawes praised how easy the PMW-F55 was to work with and how it performed:
"Physically using the camera, it’s a great size to work with and we did some handheld in the back of a car and it was really good to work with it in terms of the size. You can just strip it down... this is one of those cameras that is small enough to get into interesting places. I think it will be great for Steadicam, they’ll love it. 3D will probably love it as well... I feel with this camera the look is natural in the way it renders colour and the way it renders flesh tones."
Dig was produced by Fried Pixel Films, a new venture from Cinematographer Steve Lawes and Director Martin Scanlan, for Sony Europe.
