New Feature Film uses the Alexa camera

07th September, 2011

Congratulations to the team for completing the shoot of AFG (working title). This is a production for Salt Film, written and directed by Tom Petch. ONSIGHT is pleased our Camera Rental department could provide the high performance ARRI Alexa for a feature film. We also supplied the Sony F3.

Shot in the Morroccan desert over the summer meant that conditions were particularly challenging, but the Alexa using Optimo zoom lenses stood up to the test. Stuart Bentley, DoP, said, “Nothing proved to be a problem - from dust, blazing heat, extreme contrast or long hours, the Alexa handled it all.”.

Always embracing new technology, ONSIGHT was the first company to place an order for this camera at NAB 2010. Having such confidence in its image quality and capabilities allows us to focus on our technical expertise to meet the job requirements.

Stuart Bentley added, “ONSIGHT were incredibly supportive all the way through the project, offering invaluable advice and ideas in the testing stage and quick and reliable support whilst we were shooting - thanks!”.
