Gary Fong Shot a Hollywood Film with Sony Mirrorless Cameras
Gary Fong is famous in the photo industry for inventing the Lightsphere diffusion system, but now he’s taking a huge step in a new direction: Fong has directed a Hollywood feature film… using only Sony mirrorless cameras.
Here’s a 3-minute trailer for the film (note: there’s some violence).
“The Sony a6300 and a7S II were used for the shoot,” Fong tells PetaPixel. “We used the new G Master lenses, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8, and 24-70 f/2.8 mostly.”
At times, Fong also got creative with lighting. He says that for one shot of Wiseau on the surf with waves crashing in the background, everything was lit with a single iPhone bouncing light off an overhead white reflector.
Here are some more still frames from the film:
The team behind the film is currently working on distribution and are aiming to have it released in theaters.
