Making of Agent Vinod
Lenses: Ultra primes were used as they’re lighter than the Master primes, and there were a lot of monopod and handheld shots. The zoom lens was HR and Optima (15-45mm).
Camera: Arri 235, 435 and Canon 5D. Usually a 2-camera setup, a 435 and 235, were used. Some action sequences were shot with 4 film cameras and 3 5Ds. Muraleedharan zeroed in on the 5D after conducting various tests for quality. The lightweight and compact size of the camera was also a bonus. “We made some mechanisms for the 5D as well,” he says. “We’ve used it extensively through the film and even crashed a couple of them during the action sequence.”
Stock: Kodak 50D, 200T and 500T. The 50D was used when shooting outdoors in deserts. 3 Perf.
