Sony VENICE brings and lsquo;Downton Abbey and rsquo; splendour to the big screen

Sony has announced that its next-generation motion picture camera system, VENICE, was used for principal photography on the new ‘Downton Abbey’ movie, directed by Michael Engler, and produced by Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge.   

With its forward-thinking full frame sensor, impressive colour science and user-friendly operation, VENICE was chosen by Director of Photography (DOP) Ben Smithard to scale the TV series’ drama onto the big screen through impressive picture quality and greater detail.    Real emotion in every frame “VENICE was the only camera system that could deliver a larger and more detailed image to match the movie’s enthralling storyline on the big screen,” explained Ben Smithard. “When it came to shoot challenging frames for the film, the VENICE never let me down. It performed well without any issues, wherever it was put – from being rigged on camera dollies, tower cams, cranes and even helicopters.” 

VENICE, the versatile next-generation full frame motion picture camera, has been created for and with modern cinematographers in mind. It allows creatives to capture stunning visuals in almost any format, including full frame 24x26mm, Super35 and Anamorphic, with a maximum resolution of 6048 x 4032. At the same time, its usability, reliability and flexibility allow it to seamlessly match any filmmakers’ shooting requirements and support them in bringing their creative vision to life.

Hackenbacker Wins A British Academy Television Craft Award For Best Sound Fiction 2011 Posted: 09/05/2011
Hackenbacker Wins A British Academy Television Craft Award For Best Sound Fiction 2011 Hackenbacker Audio Post Production is delighted to announce that it has won the 2011 British Academy Television Craft Awards in the Best Sound Fiction category.

The London-based facility won the award for its work on ITVs major costume drama series, Downton Abbey, which aired on ITV1 in the Autumn of 2010. The award was presented last night at The Brewery in London.

Nigel Heath, Hackenbackers founder and director, says: I am absolutely thrilled that Hackenbacker has won this award and I was delighted to accept it on behalf of the whole team, all of whom have played an important part in making Downton Abbey a sound success. Costume dramas are not the easiest projects to tackle from an audio point of view because of the need to make them sound almost timeless. We have to ensure that no modern day noises such as aeroplanes or cars get into the mix and shatter the illusion. We were honoured to be asked to work on the show and we are all very proud of the result.
