Sony today confirmed that Woody Allen has chosen their CineAlta cameras for his first ever digital shoot. For this special project, Allen will be shooting with Sony’s CineAlta F65 camera with three-time Academy Award winner Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now, Reds, The Last Emperor) confirmed as the cinematographer on the as yet untitled project. The film will be mastered in 4K.
On his decision to use the F65, Storaro said: “I had seen that the Sony F65 was capable of recording beautiful images in 4K and 16 bit-colour depth in 1:2, which is my favourite composition. So when Woody called me this year asking me to be the cinematographer of his new film with the working title “WASP 2015”, my decision was already made. I convinced him to record the film in digital, so we can begin our journey together in the digital world. It’s time now for the Sony F65!Storaro is highly regarded as one of the best in the business and over the past several years, has dedicated his professional work to digital technologies.
