Director Tigmanshu Dhulia has started shooting with ARRI’s latest state-of-the-art camera “ALEXA” for his new movie ‘Sahib, Biwi aur Gangster’ (SBG). SBG is the first Bollywood film to be shot on this new digital camera, which is receiving great reviews and is favored in Hollywood. Launched recently, the Alexa is one of the most talked-about camera in the industry.
Noted cinematographer Aseem Mishra who has worked for films like ‘New York’, ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’, ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ and ‘Band Bajaa’ is shooting on Alexa for SBG.”
Produced by Brandsmith & Tigmanshu Dhulia Films, the film stars Jimmy Shergill, Randeep Hooda, Mahie Gill, Deepal Shaw, Vipin Sharma and Deepraj Rana in pivotal roles.
Talking about his experience, cinematographer Aseem Mishra shared: “I personally tested the camera and thought that it was best suited for this film considering the locations. So far the results have been great and the camera has been behaving extremely well. The real time high definition monitoring and Super 35 sensor compares well to 35mm cameras.”
The ARRI Alexa, a successor to the D21 digital camera, removes the worries of having to wait for the dailies to see the result of the shoot, as one can see the rushes at the exact quality required and provides the option of color correction on location.
