Canon Cinema EOS Cameras and Lenses Enable Filmmakers to Bring the Narrative Dramatic Tale of a Troubled South American Community’s Struggle to a Worldwide Audience martedý, 22 Luglio 2014 - 09:07 PM - 2 Months, 1 ago - 6 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Melville, New York--July 22, 2014) Equatorial heat and humidity, sporadic electrical service, and a modest budget were just a few of the challenges that director Josef Wladyka and writer/DP Alan Blanco faced while filming their feature "Manos Sucias" (Dirty Hands) among the impoverished fishing villages of Colombia’s Pacific coast. They also filmed in the jungle and aboard small boats in rough seas, all while needing to keep a low profile in a dangerous region. Wladyka and Blanco met all of these challenges with the help of compact EOS C300 Cinema cameras and professional lenses from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. Filmed completely on location, "Manos Sucias" is a drama depicting the perils of two fishermen coerced into towing an underwater narco-torpedo up the Pacific coast of Colombia. “The Canon EOS C300 Cinema camera was a great fit for this project,” Blanco said. “It gave us fabulous, robust imagery and it fits into a backpack. Many digital cinematography cameras are like computers with cameras attached to them. You have to boot them up, and in the two minutes it would have taken us to do that we could have lost the shot. The EOS C300 is a camera first and foremost, and that’s what we love about it. We were in very unpredictable places, but I could turn the EOS C300 camera on and be ready to roll.”
