DOP Duncan Telford on his camera, lens and equipment choices
“If you’re shooting over a number of days, with only a 1st AC and trainee as crew, a lighting kit that consists of a pocket par, a 1×1 LED and an inflatable frame, your talent are nice normal kids who haven’t done this kind of thing before and a major celeb who you know you’re only going to get one take with each time they’re on camera, you can be certain that you’re going to need a lens package that gives you all the help you can get. We needed to keep costs down as well, so the camera choice was a Sony F55.
Barry Bassett at VMI in London had a set of Uncoated Mini S4/i which were perfect for the job. The plan was to use the pocket par with a fresnel lens to work as 3/4 backlight to ping a bit of flare into the image, the uncoated elements would enhance this, and in addition they would help to introduce the pastel colour palette that I wanted. We were mostly hand held, and whoever was available worked the pocket par.
The lens choice made this work. The Mini S4/i’s natural and organic look worked for the story, the uncoated elements gave it something extra, and when you’re doing run & gun you know you have to give the 1st AC a chance, and with Cooke lenses you can be certain that the focus gear pitch is exactly where any 1st AC wants it to be. The difference this makes can’t be underestimated.”
