“Under the Age” (original title: “Di Bawah Umur”) is a coming-of-age film about teens exploring their youth, making mistakes, and challenging norms. “My visual concept was to make the film more fluid and dynamic, similar to the way the characters are examining their adolescence. I wanted to add a certain beauty to their reckless youth,” DP Lestafa explained.
“The director and I needed a camera that could provide the most possibilities, so we decided to go with ALEXA LF. I wanted to see how much I could push the limit of low light and color range. The results were amazing,” said Lestafa. “The Signature Primes’ large aperture gave me space to play with the light and the shadow while still capturing soft images and without losing contrast. I especially loved the perspective and depth of the 47 mm lens. The large-format combo was a beast.”
“ARRI cameras are easy to use and are reliable tools that can produce the most incredible images. They have never failed me,” Vera Lestafa, an avid ARRI fan, added.
