“No more Go Pro cameras inside a cockpit,” writes Yossy Mendelovich. “After Christopher Nolan used IMAX on a plane on Dunkirk, now is the time for more cinematography out-of-the-box thinking and the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick movie is a useful reference for that kind of implementation. In the film, director Joseph Kosinski and cinematographer Claudio Miranda have assembled, for the first time, a dedicated camera system inside a fighter-jet cockpit. The system contained an apparatus of six Sony VENICE cameras with their sensors separated. The goal was to enhance the immersion of the IMAX experience.” – Source: Y.M.Cinema
WHY THIS MATTERS
Sony VENICE’s modular design, full frame aspect ratio of 1:5:1, and IMAX certification made it the camera of choice for Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski and DP Claudio Miranda to immerse the viewer in the cockpit of a fighter jet.
