EVA1 does everything for horror film
EVA1 does everything for horror film
Cinematographer Cristian Ceoroiu wanted a camera that could do everything and he got it with the EVA1. “EVA1 is small and lightweight, but at the same time has the ergonomic feel of a bigger broadcast camera.”
 
Cristian said he was “blown away” filming outdoors for horror short film Orpheus. “It feels like I don’t have to compromise on anything. After location scouting and tests with other cameras that weren’t right for us, we postponed starting the film until I’d bought the EVA1.”

Going WILD with VariCam
Going WILD with VariCam
Capturing forest colours, filming mainly at dawn and dusk, using wide-angle and long telephoto lenses. These were all top priorities for cinematographer Dick Harrewijn when he shot WILD. The hybrid film, part nature documentary and part drama, also required many close-ups to capture the emotion of usually shy animals. “Every bit of light is important. VariCam ISO 5000 meant we were able to film before and after sunrise and sunset, when the animals were most active,” said Dick. “A film like this has never been made in the Netherlands, we’re really proud to be able to do it.”
