1. D-Day To Victory


    from Jeremy Benning csc Added 12.4K 331 18

    This is a montage I cut of footage I shot over the course of 4 weeks for the BBC/History Channel series "D-Day to Victory". We shot with Phantom Gold & Flex cameras as well as Weisscam and GoPro and 5D. We used 4 Phantoms on all the larger set ups to capture the event in one take, since they could not be repeated. Sim Digital Toronto provided cameras and support for us, including the custom fibre optic hub and network to control and capture from the Phantoms in our bomb-proof bunkers which were often 400-800m away - beyond the range of standard SDI and ethernet. Directed by Crispin Reece. Graded by Peter Lynch Max McDonald of MaxFX supervised all of the explosives and live ammo gun work, as well as worked with us to create the custom blast housings for our cameras. Andy Berry was the brilliant production designer who designed and built all of the amazing things we destroyed. We used Cooke Mini S4 and 5i lenses. Everything you see is 100% real high order explosives, no VFX were used. This is all high order explosives, detonated under controlled conditions in CFB Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada - Canada's largest military base. The scenes with snow were shot in the winter at MREL ballistics testing facility outside of Kingston, Ontario.

          from Jeremy Benning csc Added 824 13 3

          A film I shot with Ridley Scott & Associates director Adrian Moat for Saudi Airlines. We shot this over 4 days in Tenerife, Canary Islands using two red Epics, Cooke 5i lenses and an Angenieux 24-290 Optimo. Cineflex HD was used for the aerials. A flight head on a Scorpio crane was mounted to our catamaran camera ship with the Optimo to capture the long lens boat-to-boat shots. There are no special FX here - everything you see is 100% real boat action. The amazing crews were all from the Canary Islands area. Our master boat coordinator was Antonio José Arderíus Baca-Balboa. Produced by Clandestino Films of Beirut. Ray Barakat was the executive producer. Music by David Buckley We were doing 25-28 knots at times in very high winds. Pretty amazing to capture.

                  from Jeremy Benning csc Added 1,904 2 1

                  This is a trailer I cut for for this film that I shot. I'm proud to say I received a Canadian Screen Award for best photography for this film on March 4th, 2014. This film can be seen on Netfilx currently. Synopsis is courtesy the NFB website. Warning: This film contains disturbing content. Parental discretion, and/or watching this film within a group setting, is strongly advised. If you need emotional support, please contact Health Canada. Graded by Tony Wytinck at Midcan In this feature film, the profound impact of the Canadian government’s residential school system is conveyed through the eyes of 2 children who were forced to face hardships beyond their years. As young children, Lyna and Glen were taken from their homes and placed in church-run boarding schools, where they suffered years of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, the effects of which persist in their adult lives. We Were Children gives voice to a national tragedy and demonstrates the incredible resilience of the human spirit. Directed by Tim Wolochatiuk and written by Jason Sherman, We Were Children is produced by Kyle Irving for Eagle Vision Inc. and David Christensen for the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
