Hello all...

Just wondering if anyone knows what Camera(s) and Lenses were used to shoot "Six Feet Under".

Cheers,
Ed

It was a Panavision show (if I'm remembering correctly) and they probably used Primo's.

From what they mention on the DVD set, the first 3 seasons are shot on film and it switched over to HD I think in the 4th and 5th. I don't know the brand of lenses but they stated an aesthetic preference toward wider primes.

They may have switched over to posting in HD in later seasons, as did "The Sopranos", which may have also caused a switch in aspect ratio (early Sopranos were posted in 4x3 I believe and had to be redone later for 16x9 HD.) But the show itself was always shot on film I believe.

I read an article in a still photo magazine in an office about this show, and they did the cast photo on 8x10" sheet film. The show's look is inspired by the same large-format photographer, so I'd be very surprised if they switched to HD.

Sadly, I've never seen an episode, as I don't have HBO.

Gregory Crewdson was the photographer.
