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.

Let Sony Ci make the Cloud work for you

We’ve all heard about the Cloud, and how you need to be on it, or in it, to keep ahead in media production. What we’ve not all heard about is how to actually get there and how simple it can be for media companies to make it work for them. If you’re reluctant to make the leap, consider the experience of ITN Productions, the London-based bespoke production hub producing creative and commercially valuable content for the corporate, commercial, broadcast and digital sectors.
