It was not just ARRI cameras that were utilized on "Rogue One," but also ARRI lights. Pinewood MBS Lighting supplied ARRI SkyPanel LED soft lights to the production in significant numbers. The company has one of the largest SkyPanel inventories in the world and has provided them to other major upcoming movies such as "Life," "The Mummy," and "Star Wars: Episode VIII," which used well over 1,000 SkyPanel fixtures.
Filming on "Rogue One" ran through 2015 and postproduction through 2016, with the movie released internationally this December. Fraser attended the premiere and comments, "I just thought it looked amazing. The wide shots are magnificent, the close-ups are magnificent, and it just has that depth -- that three-dimensionality. In 10 or 15 years I think this is going to be a standard format. That's my prediction."
Since completing "Rogue One," Fraser has worked again with the ALEXA 65 on the Garth Davis movie "Mary Magdalene." For this biblical drama he paired the camera with custom-designed ARRI Rental lenses, as well as optics of his own, illustrating the great variety of bespoke lens options available for the system.
