It’s nothing new that shooting on HD is known to be conducive for productions that take place in the studio and highly controlled environments. On the upcoming HBO series Bored to Death starring Jason Schwartzman, the camera crew put two ARRIFLEX D-21s to the test on a challenging shoot comprised mainly of location work.
Director of Photography Vanja Cernjul describes, “We shot in every neighborhood in New York City, at every different time of day. We were outside a lot with sunny exteriors and on the schedule we were on it was really hard to control the sunlight. I was lucky to have a camera that handled the highlights so well.” Read on to find out more about this highly anticipated series and Cernjul’s latest experience shooting with the D-21.
