Blackmagic Cinema Cameras Capture the Action on 'Rush Hour'

Christian Sebaldt, ASC, cinematographer on the CBS cop drama Rush Hour, is using the Blackmagic Cinema Camera PL to shoot selected action, stunt and car scenes. “We do a lot of up-close action scenes—scenes with the actors moving, fighting, getting thrown around and jumping on and off moving vehicles,” explains Sebaldt, who alternates shooting duties with cinematographer Marshall Adams, ASC, on the show. “We need a high-quality camera that can get us dynamic shots, but that also is small and light enough to be rigged in cars or close to the actors. Every episode has fight sequences and stunts, and the Blackmagic cameras are used in most of them.”

Sebaldt recently shot an intense action scene in a Los Angeles parking garage with Blackmagic Cinema Cameras. “We built a mix of handheld rigs and also mounted the cameras to multiple points on the outside of the cars,” Sebaldt recalls. “Our grips and rigging guys love that they can set them up anywhere without getting in the way of the acting. The cameras were right on top of the actors. Because they are so compact, but at the same time super-high quality, we could get right up close to the action. I was incredibly happy with the images.”
