This is a film i shot and Edited in Belarus for Newsnight ,we primarily shot on the Sony PMW-500 with an HD 22x lens with 2 64gb XdCam flash media cards . We also used a Canon 5D and a Canon 7D as well as a go pro hero 2 for our wide cutaways during the interviews .
We where expecting the interview with the president to be about an hour long ....it ended up being just under 4 hours ! which was challenging for the cutaway cameras as the wide shot on the 5D was important and as we know it only records in 12 min chunks ...not great ! i did the main edit in Georgia on an apple mac 17'' pro with FCP 7 and graded most of the shots with magic bullet looks . the edit was then taken into the edit suites at BBC where subtitles and a final audio polish was done
