I return to the doddleTALKS Tech podcast on episode 17. We discuss the approach to selecting cameras for Need for Speed. Then, by testing those cameras, how we found that they each had their own unique digital emulsion. It’s about each camera’s unique abilities and how to use those abilities to your advantage.
Part of the challenge of Need for Speed is also managing the process of shooting with eight or nine cameras at one time. Today (April 30), we are on day 21 of the film, and love the Canon 4k camera systems.
Enjoy the podcast, and thank you to James DeRuvo at doddleNEWS.
