Lheure bleue: In the blue blaze of twilight with the OConnor 2575

In the blue hour, the sky shines deep indigo producing an almost magical atmosphere. Any Cinematographers who want to capture the special light in this limited time frame must be able to quickly and dependably work with their equipment. That is why Italian cinematographer Maura Morales Bergmann depended on the versatile 2575 fluid head by OConnor, a part of Vitec Videcom, a Vitec Group company, to shoot the French short film Lheure bleue by director Annarita Zambarano last year.
