Deadgirl is a low budget feature from the producers of Hellraiser.
We just finished shooting our first week, which went pretty well considering that we are among the first ones to use this very new configuration: The Thompson Viper with Digi-Primes and the Codex, a high-resolution digital media recording system, designed to capture moving images and sound from high-definition digital motion picture cameras. The footage is recorded live and raw on 2 diskpacks and backuped during the day to an external Ciprico harddrive, which is sent every evening to Dalsa for processing. You can visit their website here.
We spent more of our time in the very dusty basement of Buena Vista Lofts, a former hospital, downtown. We are wearing masks all day and the movie will be almost 100% handheld… It’s a good work-out 😉 Tomorrow, we will be in North Hollywood for two days and will be using the new Dalsa “Origin” camera…
