In the summer of 2019, Laurent Tangy, AFC and director Cédric Jimenez (‘The Connection’ , ‘The Man with the Iron Heart’) reunited for their 3rd joint feature, ‘BAC Nord’, which is also the first feature film ever shot with ZEISS Supreme Primes Radiance lenses.
‘BAC Nord’ delves into the dangerous but also deeply humane northern neighborhoods of Marseilles, in the footsteps of a field brigade (‘la BAC’) trapped in a judicial scandal as they have to cross yellow lines to meet the expectations of their hierarchy.
Laurent will tell us how he used large format and the specific look of Supreme Prime Radiance to give a “visceral feeling” to this true story, recalled from the point of view of the characters, while paying homage to Marseilles, the director's hometown. Yov Moor, colorist, will also join, to talk about his contribution to the overall mood of the film, and his take on the choice of lenses from his point of view.
Cinematographer Glen MacPherson, ASC, CSC is a master at capturing images of epic proportions with a remarkable body of work including Rambo, 16 Blocks, and the technical achievement that is the Resident Evil franchise. His latest feat, ‘Monster Hunter’, is based on the global video game series phenomenon of the same name and marks another collaboration with Director Paul W.S. Anderson.
During this virtual discussion, we will delve into the making of this behemoth production which leveraged ZEISS Supreme Primes lenses and metadata recording capabilities and explore the intricacies of adapting a popular video game for the big screen.
