VENICE a perfect fit for Reddy’s colourful & lavish movie

Bright-coloured costumes, lavish song and dance sequences, and larger-than-life production sets – and to capture them all, Bollywood is going for Sony’s VENICE. 

VENICE pushes the boundaries of high-end cinematography with revolutionary 36x24mm full-frame sensor and Super35 anamorphic 4K, a recording mode which offers two full-height 2x squeeze anamorphic imager modes that include 6:5 and 4:3 recording modes for 12:5 (known as 2.39:1) and 8:3 (2.66:1) scenes respectively.

Sudhakar Reddy, producer of the film Saand Ki Aankh, selects VENICE to capture the story of two of India’s famous octogenarian sharpshooters, Chandro and Prakashi Tomar. The team leased the VENICE camera and its extension system (CBK-3610XS) from R.D. Equipment, a well-known rental service provider in Mumbai.

To ensure that VENICE was a perfect fit for Reddy’s stringent requirements, a ‘look test’

was done with actors before shooting commenced. He said: “The ‘look’ test was important as it allowed me to test VENICE’s latitude, its eight built-in ND filters and its wide Dynamic Range, which impressed me the most.”

VENICE’s phenomenal colour science ensures a soft tonal film-look with natural shadows and mid-tones, which was what Reddy and his team sought for.

“VENICE’s 15+ stops Dynamic Range combined with Dual Base ISO of 500 and 2500 meant that I could shoot confidently in low light conditions.

“It’s easy to see why VENICE has hit the sweet spot with cinematographers around the world. It delivers that distinctive VENICE look and feel that I am sure movie-goers will fall in love with,” said Reddy.
