Some girls prefer Anton Bauer batteries
A nton/Bauer® continues to be the battery of choice for the latest generation
of up-and-coming cinematographers. Case in point when it came to
selecting batteries for her latest film, cinematographer Rachel Morrison showed
no hesitation in utilizing Anton/Bauer products to fuel the production of, Some
Girl(s), starring Kristen Bell and Adam Brody.
“Using Anton/Bauer batteries is like buying good glass [lenses]” says Morrison,
who employed Anton/Bauers HyTRON® 140 batteries to power her cameras on
the Some Girl(s) shoot. “Although the cameras and the technology surrounding
them are changing rapidly, I can always fall back on Anton/Bauer batteries, as
they stay compatible with the current technology and are the gold standard.”

Forbidden Technologies plc has announced that British broadcaster Channel 5 has purchased a FORscene server
after a six-month trial.
Despite the fact that FORscene was introduced in the middle of test-case production cycles and that staff received no
formal training, Channel 5 was impressed with the workflow efficiencies FORscene offered during the trial. The system
proved especially valuable as a logging and rough-cut tool on “Go Hard or Go Home,” where it replaced tape and
paper-based logging. Staff involved in the testing phase requested that FORscene be included in the plans for future
productions - influencing the executive decision to purchase.
