DOP Peter Ellmore on his camera and lens choice:
“The Beatles are such a quintessential English rock band that choosing Cooke lenses for this project seemed like the only way to go. The promo mixed archive film footage and photographs of the band. A combination of Cooke lenses and Alexa Mini would achieve an organic quality to help blend all these different elements together.

I considered using older Cooke Series lenses but as this project involved VFX work, I felt that the S4s would give me the classic look I wanted but would still retain a modern optical quality that would give post a clean image to work with. Like the remastered music, the S4s are a modern redesign of classic Cooke Optics.

The shoot involved a day at Abbey Road’s Studio Two where The Beatles recorded their iconic album. Another day was spent shooting the puppeteered and animated photographs that would all be put together to achieve the effect of the sun forming above the instruments.

The look of the Cooke lenses really helped with the feel I was aiming for and enhanced the warmth and saturated colours that I wanted to bring to the sunrise.”
