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 would not hesitate to choose it for a wide variety of projects, especially, something where you are looking for a very powerful intense look.”
