For the short film “Forged,” director and cinematographer Phil Holland used RED Digital Cinema’s 8K Weapon Vista Vision/full-frame 35mm camera, powered Anton/Bauer’s CINE battery.
“The new CINE line is really exciting,” Holland reports. “They’re short, cubic in shape, and fit the form factor of these latest digital cinema cameras perfectly. The CINE batteries are low profile and keep the camera balanced and weighted properly while I shoot.”
With 12 amps of continuous power and Li-Ion cell technology, the CINE battery series is specifically designed for high-power consumption digital cinema style cameras. The battery’s PowerTap for 14V accessories helped power Holland’s Litepanels Astra 1×1 LED lights, while its Fuse Link technology protected the battery in case of a cell anomaly or severe impact, preventing damage.
“We got about two and a half hours of run time, which was perfect for this kind of shoot,” Holland says.
