Vimeo and Canon are partnering to release the feature-length documentary Bending the Light, directed by veteran filmmaker Michael Apted (the Up Series, Gorillas in the Mist, The World is Not Enough). Bending the Light, a celebration of the craft of visual imaging, explores the relationship between the artisans who create camera lenses and the professionals who depend on their lenses to capture their creative visions.
A director of photography for the past two decades, David Klein, ASC, has shot movies and television shows using numerous film and digital formats. “Every motion-picture film stock has its own look,” he said, “and that’s true of every digital cinema camera as well.”
For the first in a series of quirky national spots for the Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, cinematographer Gavin Fisher decided to use the Blackmagic camera, Canon lenses, and his trusty Sachtler Ace M for support.
