Johann Perry has spent most of his twenty-year career making documentaries, but he successfully ventured into feature territory with "Against The Law," which was nominated for a British Film Academy Award (BAFTA) last year. He’s an AMIRA enthusiast, having bought one soon after they first came out. “I just want a good camera with a great sensor, a well-made matte box and a beautiful lens,” he says, “and ARRI always delivers that simplicity, which I find very reassuring.”
