It's A Sin - Red Productions

Director: Peter Hoar

DOP: David Katznelson

It's A Sin was shot in and around the North West and follows five 18 year olds who move to London in 1981 and have their lives turned upside down by the Aids crisis. Written & created by Russell T Davies, the show is based on his own and his friends' experiences, and to commemorate the generation who lost their lives to the illness.

We worked with DOP David Katznelson to build the perfect package for the shoot and after a series of tests at our Media City base, he settled on a combination of TLS Rehoused vintage Canon K35 lenses and Cooke Optics Anamorphic S6/i lenses. This gave Director Peter Hoar the ability to shoot both Full Frame and 4K Anamorphic, complementing the various styles and storyline of the show.

Shot On What?: Sony Venice & Rialto Cameras, TLS Rehoused Canon K35, Cooke S6/i 2x Anamorphics, Leitz Macro & Noctilux Lenses
