ALEXA Sample Footage
ARRI provides sample footage, shot on ALEXA SXT and ALEXA 65.
This site provides an overview of the footage available.
The shots are intended for anyone who wants to test a workflow with ALEXA ProRes and/or ARRIRAW files. For example, to test LUTs for converting from LogC to Rec709, or to check how each of the different formats the ALEXA camera has to offer is best handled in different editing systems.
Please note that this sample footage was created for workflow evaluation purposes.
