‘Death Row Stories’ Shot with Canon EOS C500 and 5D Cameras

Director of photography Antonio Rossi turned to Canon’s EOS C500 digital cinema camera and EOS 5D Mark III DSLR to shoot Death Row Stories, the CNN series that tracks compelling capital murder cases.

Death Row Stories is composed primarily of three styles of footage: artistically lit interviews, “mood roll” (B-roll of abstract shots to establish a mood) and stylized shots Rossi describes as “quasi-reenactments.” The JR45Cine picture profile created by AbelCine was key to Rossi’s ability to capture the kind of images series director Alex Gibney sought for each type of shot. The picture profile was loaded into the EOS C500 from an SD card and then tweaked by Rossi according to the look desired for each scene.
