Michos Takes On Music and Dance With OConnor for Langston Hughes Memoire Black Nativity
Music and dance are a big part of the contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes holiday musical drama, Black Nativity. It follows Langston (Jacob Latimore), a street-wise teen from Baltimore as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged grandparents. While attending his Grandfathers church production of Black Nativity, Langston falls asleep and escapes into a dreamscape of song, dance, and a little divine intervention. Practically every dance or song number relied on instinct and the ability to whip pan. Snap zoom, or even grab the focus in the process of discovering the most dynamic shots, says cinematographer Anastas Michos, ASC. Thats where my favorite support the OConnor 2575 was invaluable. OConnor is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

OConnor Takes Mathers Through Battlefields for 1000 to 1
Cinematographer James Mathers often chooses projects that have passion, heart, and a positive message. Such was the case of his latest production, 1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story. For the inspiring true comeback story of a gifted college basketball player felled by a catastrophic stoke, Mathers knew his shooting package had to perform flawlessly. Thats why he chose the RED Epic paired with Angenieux, Zeiss, and Fujinon lenses, along with the OConnor 2575 for support.OConnor is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
