Director-writer David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook has been delighting audiences and critics since winning the audience award at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. It’ turned out to be a precursor for what was to come as the movie has gone on to be one of the most celebrated films this awards season. The movie has garnered recognition from the Golden Globes, BAFTA, PGA, WGA, SAG, and eight Academy Award® nominations.
Silver Linings Playbook was photographed on 35mm, 2-perf by Masanobu Takayanagi and he primarily used KODAK VISION3 Color Negative Film 5219 and 5213. The cinematographer and Russell decided early on to give the actors “360-degrees’ for their performances, making many of the camera movements spontaneous. Their game plan proved to be the right one, as Silver Linings Playbook is the first film in over 30 years to have Oscar® nominations in all four acting categories.
The 35mm 2-perf format is gaining popularity with low budget features due to the inherent cost savings of using 50% less stock. The format gives you the many benefits of film and is a natural fit for widescreen projection.
I'm Yours is a romantic comedy about two lost souls on an illuminating road trip from Manhattan to the wilds of Northern Canada starring Rossif Sutherland and Karine Vanasse and was shot on Kodak VISION3 5212, 5217 and 5219 in 2-Perf. In their own words, Director Leonard Farlinger and Cinematopgraher Jonathon Cliff share why it was the right format for their story.
