OConnor Helps Crescenzo Raise the Bar of Visual Excitement on "CSI: Las Vegas"
OConnor Helps Crescenzo Raise the Bar of Visual Excitement on "CSI: Las Vegas"Keeping a hit television show that’s been on the air for 14 years fresh and interesting is a demanding challenge. As scripts get bigger to sustain audience interest, budgets inevitably get smaller. “When a show reaches syndication, it has primarily done its job of crossing the finish line of making money for a very long time,” says "CSI" cinematographer Crescenzo Notarile, ASC. “So, why spend more when the networks, at this point, don’t have to. It’s a creative challenge to keep the audience coming back with what we have. It’s not making more – it’s making the freshest. Working with OConnor and it’s support equipment, it keeps us cameramen perpetually perfecting camera movement and striving higher to express a story. Each week we try to creatively surpass what we did in the previous episode, and in our own way, raise the bar – if not for the audience, for ourselves as filmmakers. And, I can always count on OConnor to be there to help me make this possible.”

Michos Takes On Music and Dance With OConnor for Langston Hughes’ Memoire "Black Nativity"
Michos Takes On Music and Dance With OConnor for Langston Hughes’ Memoire "Black Nativity"Music and dance are a big part of the contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes’ holiday musical drama, "Black Nativity." It follows Langston (Jacob Latimore), a street-wise teen from Baltimore as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged grandparents. While attending his Grandfather’s church production of "Black Nativity," Langston falls asleep and escapes into a dreamscape of song, dance, and a little divine intervention. “Practically every dance or song number relied on instinct and the ability to whip pan. Snap zoom, or even grab the focus in the process of discovering the most dynamic shots,” says cinematographer Anastas Michos, ASC. “That’s where my favorite support – the OConnor 2575 was invaluable.”
