2 Oscar winners + 1 Indiecam = Movie magic!


Indiecam chosen by Anthony Dod Mantle for Danny Boyle’s new feature film ‘Trance’


Although every detail about Danny Boyle’s latest movie is
covered in a shroud of plot protecting secrecy, there is one
exciting detail we may reveal: A high proportion of ‘Trance’
has been shot with the IndiePOV. After testing a wide range
of mini cameras the IndiePOV was Anthony Dod Mantle’s first
choice for partnership along with another leading digital
camera. The cinematographer was impressed by the
camera’s superb image quality which is obtained using the
brand new Indiecam 12bit RAW workflow.

Danny Boyle and Anthony Dod Mantle are renowned for
their innovative storytelling and their quest for the highest
quality images. In this respect IndiePOV is the perfect match
for their latest film. The handy and lightweight 180g camera
facilitates shots in any kind of situation and is exceptionally
flexible when it comes to narrow sets and extreme angles.


During elaborate Test-Shootings and subsequent screenings
at a prime Soho post production house the IndiePOV
passed the most rigorous of colour grading tests with
flying colours. DOPs, camera assistants and colour grading
artists were amazed by its superior quality big screen
images.

For picture quality the IndiePOV is a perfect match to its
bigger camera counterpart on the set of “Trance”, making
a seamless transition between shots of the two cameras. It
is small and light with perfect sight!

As anticipation for the release of Trance increases, watch
this space for future images and sample footage of our
cameras in action!
