Hello! Im shooting a comercial with a 435 in S35 for Mexico. They asked us to use a super tv ground glass. My doubt is... what is it? and it is like normal tv 4:3 0r 16:9 ? or what ? I never shot in this format. thanks!

I think you're referring to what we call Big TV in the US. If memory serves it's full frame S35. Your rental house should know exactly what you need and change the ground glass for you. When I was working in commercials more often most of them were shot Big TV.

When shooting with a silent aperature the Groundglass you speak of outlines the TV safe area's for the larger frame.

Hi,


This is my first post here!!!

So to answer your question Super TV is a 4:3 Formatt that covers the full frame in the eyepiece. It is normally called an ANSI S35 Ground Glass for a Arri 435.

Hope that helps!! :)
