ARRI ALEXA on SKYFALL: Interview with Roger Deakins ASC

ARRI ALEXA on SKYFALL: Interview with Roger Deakins ASC | DirPhtog | Scoop.it

(...) "Not only is SKYFALL the first Bond movie to be shot digitally, as well as Mendes' first digital experience, it is the first production anywhere to make use of ALEXA Studio cameras, which were supplied - alongside ALEXA Plus and M models - by ARRI Media in London. Deakins recently spoke with ARRI about his work on the film.


ARRI: How did you come to choose the ALEXA system for SKYFALL?

Roger Deakins: I first used the ALEXA on IN TIME (2011) and on that film I had a huge amount of night exteriors, so I needed a camera with speed and versatility. I did side-by-side testing and found that there was so much more latitude in the file from the ALEXA than in a 4K scan of a film negative. I was also drawn to the subtle fall-off to highlights and the enormous amount of detail in the shadows. It was the first digital camera I had seen where I thought the technology had crossed the knife edge and taken us into a new world.

I knew we would also have a lot of low-light scenes on SKYFALL, so I said to Sam that he should look at what I did on IN TIME. I told him just to look at the actors' eyes and I think the clarity of their eyes is probably what swayed him more than anything else. For me there's just a snap to the eyes that you don't get with film.
