DOP Alexander Hackinger on his lighting and lens choices:
“At Meet Your Master we always have the challenge that we have people in front of the camera, who have been in the public eye for a long time. They naturally want to look their best on camera. As we work with a lot of contrast in the face, it is even more important that the optics create beautiful skin tones. A big soft keylight, some negative fill and the Cooke S4, that’s it! During the trailer pictures we often have to work very fast and I had to deal with difficult lighting conditions. It was then all the more important to have a tool at hand that I could trust. From the experience of many shoots with the Cooke S4, I knew where to push the optics. Whether the project involved me setting a beauty-lit portrait light, shooting on top of a mountain or descending into a cave, I knew I would generate the image I expected with the Cooke S4. In post-production we then only added a little extra contrast and balanced the colours.”
