Note from the cinematographer

OK. Finally! A screening of the available light shootout I did late last year. Deluxe have kindly struck me a 35mm print and I'm inviting you to come and see it.

The shootout is actually a short film, repeated six times, and shot with a different camera each time. It was written and directed by Kate Dennis as an exercise in shooting guerrilla style using only available light in a series of city locations.

Every shot was repeated six times using firstly a 35mm camera, then Super 16, RED ONE MX, ARRI ALEXA, the new Sony PMW-F3, and finally a Canon EOS 1Dmk4.

I was able to use the same lenses each time (Cooke S4), aside from the 1D where I used Zeiss Compact Primes.

The six short films, one for each camera, have been compiled onto a single 35mm print and will also run as a DCP.
