Lit with Hive

Shot on Sony's PMW-F5 CineAlta 4K Camera by USC School of Cinematic Arts. Notes from Cinematographer Rob Kositchek. Rodney Allen Hooks - Writer/Director.

The Contract offered Director & Writer Rodney Hooks and I some great opportunities to test the Sony F5 Camera. Some of our intention technically was to explore it’s native ISO ( we rated it at 1200 ) , it’s dynamic range and the cameras color sensitivity especially to mixed color temperature light sources.

Thanks go to Birns and Sawyer Rentals for providing us with accessories and a beautiful set of Zeiss Ultra Prime Lenses. Jonathan Miller of HIVE Lighting provided us with powerful and portable Plasma lights that proved to be excellent instruments for the locations. Doug Wellman, Assistant Dean of Production at USC, saw to it that we had everything we needed in the way of equipment, logistics, safety and support.
