ALEXA: The Violin Maker
We recently asked DP Tom Faehrmann to try out an ALEXA prototype. He visited a local violin maker in a small town close to Neuschwanstein, Germany and shot this stunning vignette. Notes the filmmaker, "We arrived with a truck full of lighting equipment, but ended up shooting with only what we found in his workshop: two 100 W desk lamps. Since ALEXA has a true and completely noise-free ISO of 800, the light we captured looks completely natural and authentic..."
Tom Faehrmann takes ALEXA out again, this time to the set of a still photography fashion shoot by cinematographer and photographer Oliver Maier.

What is Anamorphic?
Filmmakers and audiences alike have grown up with the uniquely cinematic anamorphic look and associate it with the emotional impact of big-screen movies. The sheer width and clarity of the format, its shallow depth of field, the way it handles out of focus backgrounds and flares, all of these have been burned into the subconscious of cinema-goers for over half a century.
See here samples of the anamorphic look.
