AUSSIE SHORT EMPLOYS VIPER & CODEX GEAR
The short tells the story of a 13-year old boy whose only thoughts are
about one girl - Sarah Jane - and his effort to become a part of her
world. The UK’s Codex Digital provided a system for use as a
multi-purpose recording, storage, playback and review device for
footage coming either directly out of the Viper camera or separately
from Venom on-board flash packs. This gave the director, producer,
camera team and effects supervisor a reliable and convenient hub to
check footage for focus, editing and visual effects purposes.
The Codex system was able to serve up the recorded footage in a range
of different formats – including data for the post house in Sydney,
HD-SDI for HD-SR for tape copies, and QuickTime files for review on
remote workstations and laptops.
I Love Sarah Jane, in
co-operation with QOOB (Europe), was directed by Spencer Susser and was
produced by Angie Fielder, with Mike Seymour of fxphd.com serving as
the executive producer and visual effects supervisor.
