Libatique on 'Ruby Sparks' and Alexa
Oscar-nominated DP Matthew Libatique (Black Swan) recently shot the indie comedy Ruby Sparks with the ARRI Alexa, which he had previously used for commercial work. He says, "The schedule meant we had to go at a certain pace. I knew we wouldn't have a lot of time for setups, and because of my previous experience with the Alexa, I knew how little light I could get away with. I knew that in some cases, I could get an image out of a location by using negative light, versus actually lighting."
