ARRI ALEXA PRESENTATION AT KUSTENDORF 2013
An educational workshop ARRI ALEXA was held on the sixth day of Kustendorf International Film and Music Festival 2013. Guests and students attending the festival attended a presentation of the ALEXA camera which features an anamorphic lens. At the beginning of the workshop, the representative of ARRI, Milan Kršljanin, thanked in the name of companies ARRI and Visual Impact (Serbia), as well as the partners of Living Pictures (Serbia) company, for the chance to present the digital camera ALEXA for the second time at Kustendorf. Introducing themselves with the capabilities and uses of ALEXA camera, attendants of the workshop watched numerous clips from commercials, music videos, television series and trailers that were filmed using the camera including the film Skyfall which used eleven ALEXA cameras, film Zero Dark Thirty directed by Catherine Bigelow, and the film Life of Pi by Ang Lee. Renowned for its unmatched and truly cinematic picture quality, film-like ease of operation and reliability, as well as the most straightforward postproduction, the ALEXA camera system has quickly become accepted by directors, cinematographers and producers as their “best friend on the set and in post.” At the end of the workshop, the students got a chance to see and test ALEXA anamorphic camera and lenses.
