‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ Supported by OConnor

For Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, director Spike Lee and cinematographer Daniel Patterson selected Sony’s F55 camera for its 4K resolution and full-frame sensor. They outfitted the camera with Sony SCL series prime cinema lenses and Angenieux Optimo zooms. Two Sony F55s were in action almost constantly, powered by Anton/Bauer Dionic HCX batteries and supported by OConnor Ultimate 2575D fluid heads on OConnor Cine HD tripods.

“I like the control I get while operating on an OConnor fluid head,” Patterson says. “Designed and controlled camera movement was vital to our aesthetic, and OConnor helped me deliver. I was always able to go from one setup to another without equipment slowing us down.”
