Follow the continuing adventures of Director/DP Ruben Carrillo & Band Pro's Randy Wedick on their quest to capture the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, using the new Sony F65 & Leica Summilux-C lenses. This episode focuses on the human angle of one of the proprietors involved in the shoot. Jack Thompson's suburban dream home was cut off from the outside world by an active lava flow on either side of his house. During the shoot, the flow began to creep up directly behind the house for the first time. On the plus side this allowed the crew to walk to the active flow in just a few minutes from Jack's front door. The down side is obvious, and the final conclusion is shown in this piece. During the after-action report in Honolulu, Ruben & Randy are interviewed and have both been awake for the better part of a week, with very minimal sleep, and they do their best to wrap up the results of the shoot.
This production was designed as both a camera test and a workflow test. In addition to testing dynamic range, color fidelity and the camera's performance in extreme environments, the filmmakers also traveled very light and by necessity whittled the workflow down to it's bare essentials.
Stay tuned for the online release of "The Journey of the F65", as well as future theatrical 4K screenings.
