Shooting UK's First 4K Feature Film with the Sony F651/29/2013 7:28 AM Eastern
DP Ben Smithard talks to RedShark News about shooting feature film Belle with the Sony F65. The period piece will be UK's first feature film to be shot in 4K.
Says Smithard, "We were after a really naturalistic look for Belle, in keeping with the period. The F65 produces images which have a softer, more pleasing quality, and you could really feel the beauty of 4k. It’s the closest to film that I’ve worked with without actually being film – there really was hardly any difference. As it’s set in the late 18th century we also needed the images to show off the richness of the setting and bring the audience into the piece, and the F65 was the perfect camera for that."
