Canon?s Cinema EOS C300 Cameras and Cine Zoom Lenses Find a New Home for a Powerful Story by a First-Time Indy Filmmaker
DMN Newswire--2012-11-13-- Shooting an ambitious but tightly budgeted indie feature on the streets of New York City in just 20 days with big-screen cinematic quality was the goal realized by writer/director Jono Oliver for Home, his tale of a mentally troubled young man seeking to live independently. Essential to the success of the project was not only the cooperation Oliver received from friends and supporters of this inspiring story, but also his use of two EOS C300 PL digital cinema cameras and a CN-E30-300mm cine zoom lens from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. Home was shot cinéma vérité style in Brooklyn and Manhattan by director of photography Sung Rae Cho.Oliver, an experienced first assistant director on a major episodic television series produced in New York City, and producer Daniela Barbosa knew that choosing the right camera would be a crucial decision. The camera would have to be lightweight for maximum mobility, unobtrusive for location shooting, low-light capable for dimly lit interiors, and able to deliver exceptional image quality for theatrical distribution. Familiar with the latest digital cinematography cameras, Oliver and Barbosa were especially interested in the EOS C300, which had recently been evaluated by the show they both worked on.
