"The Creator" shot on the Sony FX3 and 75mm Kowa anamorphic

The Sony FX3 paired with beloved anamorphic lens were recently used to shoot a major Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster. Directed by Gareth Edwards, who is no stranger to creating epic visuals and guerrilla style filmmaking, "The Creator" utilised a basket of low-budget filmmakers favourite gear including the Atomos Ninja and a DJI Ronin RS2 stabiliser paired with a custom handheld rig, which the director operated himself. According to a recent interview with the film's cinematographer, the majority of the film was also shot on a 75mm Kowa anamorphic lens, which has been regaining popularity again evoking the unmistakable visual flare of timeless classics such Alien and Blade Runner. ProRes RAW was also utilised as the main codec and proved itself robust enough for extensive CGI work and even for IMAX exhibition.
