As some of you may know I spent my summer working on a drama focus pulling on the Arri Alexa. It screens tonight from 10pm GMT on E4 and E4HD and shall run every weekday evening this week. The show is traditionally regarded as a TV soap however the whole idea behind this was to shoot it like a drama to appeal to a larger audience and to achieve a better aesthetic. As I previously mentioned we shot it on Arri Alexa’s and I focus pulled on ‘A Cam’ and occasionally operated on ‘B Cam’ when we used multiple camera setups. We used T1.9 ultraprimes a large majority of the time and also switched between T1.3 uncoated Superspeeds and tilt shift lenses for various in-camera effects.
Watch this 12-minute preview and decide from that whether you like it or not. Anyway if you’re in the UK and can access the show why not check it out, you may even like it?
