From a cinematographic point of view, Bryan Singer's JACK THE GIANT KILLER is shaping up to be as ambitious as Stanley Kubrick's BARRY LYNDON, renowned for containing some scenes shot entirely by candlelight using NASA-developed lenses.
Singer posted the following message on the user forum for his camera of choice for the film, the EPIC Red, which points toward an innovative use of lighting for the project:
I’m very much looking forward to using the EPIC Red for my next movie Jack the Giant Killer which will be shot in, what else, 3D. The camera’s incredibly compact size and extraordinary resolution are ideal for the 3D format.
But more importantly Jack the Giant Killer is my first movie set in a time before electricity. The EPIC’s extraordinary exposure latitude will allow me to more effectively explore the use of natural light.
