Anyone work on the crew or know what it was shot on? DV? super 16? 35? Hd?

Seems if you know you are going to rotoscope the footage that a low end cam might be good enough.

thanks

No reference at hand but I believe this was shot the same as Waking Life, on DV cameras with the footage used as an animation reference in post. No reason to shoot film or Hi-Def, as many of the details are being created later on. Linklater is also a supporter of using low end media to make films, evidenced by Tape (2001) shot on DV and his first film It's Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books (1988?) shot on Super-8.

I read today in "Digital Cinematography" it was shot with DVX-100's. But it was lit and photographed like a "real" movie, with attention paid to the needs of the rotoscoping.

I can assure you, it looks good projected. B)
