Making the Grade: Antarctica Showreel

The Sony PMW-200 is a fabulous camera which when recording at full 50mbps 4:2:2 depth, allows greater precision and control over reproduction of natural colours. Here, I show you just how incredible and awe-inspiring we can make those Antarctic icebergs look! The original footage was shot whilst I was dangling on the end of a rope using the Zodiac winch. Lateral micro-movements of the rope have been removed using post-production filters, and later a simple colour grade, altering the final input and output levels of the image. Camerwork, editing, graphics and grading by Simon Vacher Films.
