THE EQUIPMENT FOR DOCUMENTARIES

What we use

CONTENT IS THE KING! 
While shooting video and documentaries, it’s very important to use the right equipment, in order to get incredible footage and give it a memorable look. Telling a story by shooting a documentary it’s hard, and you need to take care of the visual appearance in all details. That means that you need to have the right cinematic gear at disposal. You don’t need to have the newest  camera for shooting something incredible and show your point of view in your story.  

We use Canon equipment for documentaries (camera and lenses), and we consider it our strongest point. Even if dated, it’s a high quality camera, getting sensational footage still able to touch. It’s our choice for feature length environmental documentaries, where we need strong quality and reliability. 

The second camera is a Sony a7s II which bear highest standard with its 4K files. We use Canon lenses, such as  16-35, 24-105 ed il 70-200. The so-called the Trinity. For aerial footage we’ve decided to use DJI Mavic Air, because it’s so transportable and small. It’s very important to reach whatever place, open the backpack and be ready to fly in few minutes. If it’s true that the  content is the King, we need to be able to get it on time.
