I was asked to photograph a feature documentary film in a month time and I was wondering if I could get some advice as to what would be the best camera for the job.
It's a documentary essentially filming two people having dinner in a studio set restaurant for the whole film, we are going for the cinematic approach rather an interview documentary.
The fact that we're filming in a studio gives me plenty of control in lighting, which I'm going for an intimate, moody yet natural look.
Our narrative was inffluenced by film My dinner with Andre yet we want to make it more cinematic. I'm going to go the Cooke S4 due to warmth in Skin tone but I've not decided yet which camera would work best.
We're gong for a two camera set up due to the nature of this project to maximise coverage as the shoot is only 5 days.
This film will get threatical release so that needs to be in consideration. I was looking the spect and sensor arri Amira, but being 2k I wasn't sure if it was the right camera for this.
I appreciate any advice on the matter,
