Warm Springs Productions is currently at work on the second season of the Fox News Channel docudrama series Legends and Lies, using a pair of Panasonic VariCam 35 4K camera/recorders to profile the patriots of the American Revolution. Warm Springs president Chris Richardson, who shares the executive producer credit on the show, praises the camera’s low-light capabilities: “The VariCam 35 is a perfect fit to authentically replicate the minimal lighting, the ‘living by candlelight’ of the 1770s,” he says.
Richardson has outfitted the VariCam 35s with Fujinon 19-90mm Cabrio lenses and 85-300 Super 35 zoom lenses. He is shooting the Fox News series in 2K, 12-bit 4:4:4. He adds, “We know that the VariCam 35 will give this second season of Legends and Lies an epic, beautiful, cinematic look.”
