DOP Vijay Kartik Kannan on his camera and lens choice:
“ The movie revolves around a girl who is trapped naked in a building. Director insisted that the nude portions should be pure as a baby product commercial, which made us go with Cooke and Alexa that gives such organic images. We used a lot of 100 mm and the color rendition and organic right amount of sharpness is impeccable. Throughout the film, we used a lot of out of focus to focus technique to avoid seeing the nude portions. Always been obsessed with the polygonal bokeh in the Cookes and we had used in a quite a few shots. The range of 14mm was the right coverage on the SXT to show the office space.”
