Filmscape busy shooting around the world


As it continues to expand its product range, image-capture specialist Filmscape has remained focussed on supporting cinematographers and crews on a growing number of productions, both in the UK and further afield. Filmscape’s inventory includes the latest products from manufacturers including ARRI, RED, Angenieux, Canon, Cooke, Leica and Zeiss.

Having supplied camera, lens and grip equipment to a healthy selection of home-spun dramas and commercials throughout the past year, the company has also been looking after a number of movie projects, including the US-based fantasy movie Starbright, shot by cinematographer Francesco Di Giacomo. Taking six cameras, plus a number of the company’s newly-acquired Anamorphics and prime lenses, Starbright represents one of the largest productions that Filmscape has serviced to date.

Closer to home, the company supported the recently wrapped, hard-hitting British gangster movie Rise Of The Foot Soldier III: The Beginning, with cinematographer Luke Palmer for Carnaby Films. Meanwhile, maintaining the company’s on-going support for television drama, Filmscape deployed a batch of its brand new Alexa Minis to cinematographers Rob Kitzmann and Oli Russell on their 17-week shoot for Loaded, and to cinematographer Dan Stafford Clark for the award-winning Catastrophe.

“We’ve been making some serious investment in new products and it’s fantastic to see the equipment heading straight out to work,” said Sandro Leone, Filmscape’s head of drama. “We’re absolutely committed to providing the highest possible levels of client service which, of course, includes expanding the range of camera and lensing systems that we make available.”
