I saw this Ken Loach's latest 35mm film last night at our local cinema. I was slightly surprised to see Kodak on the end credits, as the subject would have been easier to shoot on video. Very natural performances, and shot mainly in northern UK urban locations. The camera was apparently Arricam ST. Does anyone know which Kodak stock was used ? It looked very sharp, although projected digitally.
From the discussion afterwards I understand that Ken Loach likes to keep well back from the actors in his films. So they and the numerous extras tend to be less aware of the camera and crew. Also he apparently only provides them with the minimum of screenplay material, so the actors themselves are not fully aware what will happen in the next scene. And he tries to shoot everything in sequence as the story progresses.
