HBO’s Ballers centers on an ex-football player (Dwayne Johnson) who is now trying his hand at managing other players. DP Jaime Reynoso speaks to ARRI about the show’s handheld, run-and-gun shooting style.
“I just shoot, and the focus pullers and operators don’t know what will happen. There are all these imperfections that I love,” Reynoso says about the show’s lack of rehearsals. “I said, for a handheld show with a documentary look, we should go with [the ARRI Amira].”
