Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera and Canon Cinema Prime and Zoom Lenses Provide the Performance Needed by First-Time Independent Moviemaker Zephyr Benson
News: Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera and Canon Cinema Prime and Zoom Lenses Provide the Performance Needed by First-Time Independent Moviemaker Zephyr BensonThe movie’s budget was ultra-low, the shooting schedule just 21 days, and the “studio” mostly the mean streets and cramped tenements of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Add a first-time director/screenwriter who is also portraying the film’s main character, and it was clear that making "Straight Outta Tompkins" presented multiple challenges. Nevertheless, director Zephyr Benson and DP Brandon Roots shot the film by combining diligent effort, expert collaborators, and the image quality, high mobility, and superb low-light performance of an EOS C300 cinema camera (and cinema prime and zoom lenses) from Canon, U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. A gritty, cautionary tale of a young drug dealer, "Straight Outta Tompkins" is 21-year-old Benson’s debut feature and yet another example of the ongoing democratization in filmmaking made possible by affordable, high-performance digital cameras such as the EOS C300.
