New stunning footage from the upcoming Blackmagic Design URSA Mini 4.6K camera emerges that shows impressive dynamic range and organic texture. The trailer for the upcoming film Yggdrasil was shot by Director of Photography Sebastian Wiegartner with a single 15mm Zeiss CP.2 prime lens and a Sachtler Artemis gimbal stabiliser.
See the trailer below:
The trailer above is very evocative of Innaritu's epic revenge & redemption tale "The Revenant", and definitely influenced by the fluid and immersive Oscar-winning cinematography of Emanuel Lubetzki. The constant flowing camera, the wide perspective and of course, all shot with available light.
Sebastian Wiegartner is no stranger to impressive cinematography, just have a browse through his Vimeo channel. Here is what he had to say about shooting the trailer for Yggradsil in just two days.
