THE RIGHT CAMERA
Nick Meek explains how he made sure he had the right tool for the job
Some cameras are a bit digital-looking and kind of ‘constrasty’, which makes them better suited for VFX oriented work, while others feel a bit softer and a bit more human. The Alexa Mini fits into the latter, and we chose it for this reason. It not the most high resolution of cameras; it’s 4K as opposed to 8K. But it’s got a lovely softness and depth to the way it captures colour, which to me means it sits very well with the analogue way of making a colour print out in the darkroom.
