Taylor Wigton's G1/A1 article now online


An exclusive interview with director David Fincher about his decision to go data all the way on his latest two movies is only one of over two dozen new articles to go live today on the Showreel website (www.showreel.org/memberarea). The soon-to-be released movie Zodiac and his in-production project The Secret Life of Benjamin Button were both shot on the Grass Valley Viper, with film and videotape eliminated completely from the process.

New FREEVIEW articles include Taylor Wigton’s comprehensive test of the new Canon HDV cameras, the XH A1 and XH G1, as well as Phil Rhodes’ test of the JVC HD250/251 camera, which sits at the top of JVC’s HDV range. Also in the FREEVIEW section is Philip Richardson’s article about using Final Cut Pro and Final Touch for a low-budget full 2K digital intermediate, going both from and to 35mm. David Valentine’s interview with Darren Aronofsky, director of Pi, Requiem for a Dream and recent sci-fi epic The Fountain is also now FREEVIEW. These join other FREEVIEW articles that include the first part of Geoff Boyle’s diary of shooting Mutant Chronicles, Simon Wyndham’s test of the Sony V1 HDV camera, our full test of Avid Media Composer software-only version, and Rodney Charters’ and Taylor Wigton’s test of 1/3in chip cameras on the set of 24.
