In this episode of cinema5D ON THE GO, we talk to cinematographer William Wages ASC about shooting on film vs. digital, light meters, and the Panasonic Lumix line!

William Wages, ASC

For cinematographer William Wages ASC, the main reason for shooting on film has been relegated to getting a certain aesthetic effects, such as achieving a Super 8mm look. In terms of capabilities and image quality, modern cameras far outperform the capabilities of film, which in turn has allowed for the development of a new visual and technical cinematic language. He gives us a few examples of his work in which these advantages have come in handy.

Mr. Wages also tells us about how he uses the Panasonic Lumix line of mirrorless cameras, such as the GH4 or GH5, as viewing devices during location scouts and on set. Rather than using a director’s viewfinder, the portability of these cameras – in addition to their V-Log capabilities and high ISO – allow for a quick visualisation of what the end result could be when planning to shoot with a Panasonic Varicam LT. Of course, the dynamic range may not be the same as the LT, but they certainly have a place in his arsenal for shooting high-end productions.
