NT LIVE is a groundbreaking concept of putting on plays at the National Theatre in London and broadcasting them live to cinemas all over the world via Satellite.
The first play is “Phedre” on the 25th June with Helen Mirren
This was the first time my work would be shown on the big screen and the first time anything I have shot has been transferred to 35mm film. I have yet to see it in print but soon I hope!
It was shot on the Sony EX3 with the Letus Ultimate and mostly Zeiss Nikon lenses. Lighting was with a mixture of Kino Flo Diva’s and Dedos.
The helicopter shots were shot on the Sony F900. The frame rate for the shoot was 24p. All shot at 1080p.
Mike also edited it and it has an original score. The great John Shrapnel did the Voice Over.
You can see the, obviously, web compressed version here but do check out your local independent cinema that is part of NT live, like the Curzon chain in London so you can see it in all it’s glory!
