We travelled to Regina, Saskatchewan and the surrounding prairies for a few days to capture visuals for a part of a documentary series for on Canadian authors who have written about notable Canadians. Tommy Douglas is known as the founder of medicare.
I always love shooting doc when I can, to get back to the essentials of filmmaking. We shot with the Amira – which I loved – using the Fujinon Cabrio 19-90mm zoom. What a fantastic combination. The built-in ND wheel on the Amira and the ENG-style zoom grip on the Fuji reminds me of my days shooting doc with the F900 and older Sony broadcast cameras. Only this time using the lush Arri sensor technology in a robust cinema / doc camera.
We also shot timelapse using the CamBlock system and Canon 5D that I own.
