Cadaver Behind the Scenes

This panel discussion from the Cine Gear Expo is a behind-the-scenes exposé of the first major motion picture to be shot entirely on Sony’s a7sII full-frame camera, paired with specially engineered Hawk65 Anamorphic lenses to provide a look that can only be realized by shooting on very large image sensors.

Cadaver is a horror-thriller is pioneering a wide range of new technologies to realize a modestly budgeted motion picture with a high-quality production aesthetic.

I watched all 50 minutes of the video and it’s an insightful session that explores the tools, techniques and creative process of a production, which will inspire a new dialogue about the new technology options available to modern motion picture producers. Namely, shooting with full-frame, compact cameras like the a7sII ($2598.00 on Amazon).

I’m not shooting anything near motion pictures, but the cine work I’ve been doing on assignment for Digital Photo Pro has been with the a7s II.


My daily shooter is Sony A1 with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
