PANAVISION - ANAMORPHICS - CHARLENE'S JOURNEY
"The #CSeries Anamorphics contributed powerful visual elements to 'Charlene's Journey'. Being a run and gun shoot, we relied a lot on the lenses and locations to pull most of the weight. The compact size of the C Series meant myself and 2nd Unit DP Ewan Donachie were able to shoot easyrig and gimbal for long periods of time, while still achieving a beautiful image.
Being my first experience shooting with the C Series anamorphics, I couldn't pull my head away from the monitor all day. The lush bokeh and organic feel from these lenses were a huge treat and really added to the heartwarming story. I found myself shooting predominantly on the 100mm, while 2nd Unit ran with the 50mm on the gimbal.
I'd like to say a really special thanks to Sue Garnsey and the prep team at #Panavision Sydney for their support. Also, a huge thanks to the team, director Andre Rodriguez and Electric Lime Films for having me on board."
