The long-awaited sequel to the 2003 holiday cult classic, Bad Santa (directed by Terry Zwigoff), Bad Santa 2 is directed by Mark Waters (Vampire Academy, Mean Girls). Theo Van de Sande, ASC (Blade, Cruel Intentions, Wayne’s World) shot the dark comedy with Panasonic VariCam 35 4K cinema cameras. Comedy or not, Waters and Van de Sande wanted the film to have a darker look. For developing the look of Bad Santa 2, Van de Sande did not use any visual references, including the original Bad Santa (shot by Jamie Anderson).

Horace and Pete is a 2016 web series created, written, and directed by Louis C.K. A distinctive feature of the series is frequent references to highly topical current events during barroom discussions. This was made possible by having less than a week between the production and release of the episodes. It was also one of the reasons that the VariCam 35s were chosen for the show, according to post-production technical advisor Troy Thompson a longtime C.K. collaborator and colorist at New York’s Running Man.
