Rodney Charters pressed for time with the Sachtler Video 18 Posted: 11/06/2013
Rodney Charters pressed for time with the Sachtler Video 18
Director and Producer Alicia Brauns recently had a very personal story to tell about her fathers journey from holocaust survivor to well-known surgeon. To depict that journey and Dr. Jack Brauns positive outlook on life, she turned to her favorite cinematographer, Rodney Charters, ASC. The two knew they would be covering an extensive amount of ground, from inside the infamous camps to the journey through Germany and beyond in a short shooting time. They had to build their shooting package carefully so they chose Canon C300s supported by a fluid head and legs from Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
