ETERNA Vivid 500 & 160 Demonstration Film (Phedon Papamichael ASC)

Directors of Photography:

Fujifilm invited three highly esteemed cinematographers to test the rich, bold look of the new ETERNA Vivid 500 film stock. The three cinematographers were given free rein to create individual spots using the stock in challenging situations that also showcase ETERNA Vivid 500's ability to intercut with its sister stock ETERNA Vivid 160.

“I was interested in exploring how the stock would handle wide expanses of solid color in the sand and sky to help better understand the grain.”
