Australian Movie Charlie and Boots Uses Fujifilm Stock

Charlie & Boots tells the story of a father and son who travel from Victoria to Cape York to fulfill their lifelong ambition to fish off Australia's northern tip. The film has been a big success locally and current Australian Cinematographer of the Year and the film’s DOP Roger Lanser ACS recently gave his unique insight into its making, including his choice of Fujifilm stock.

Lanser said, “The decision to use Fujifilm on Charlie & Boots was an easy one. I have been using Fujifilm for a number of productions and always found it to be excellent. Dean Murphy, the director, and I both agreed that we wanted to shoot on film not digitally and as I had won awards for our last film together, we went ahead with Fujifilm. We were filming mostly in daylight with some night scenes so the chosen stocks were the ETERNA 250D and the 500T. We did some stock tests mainly to determine the best flesh tones with our cast. As our two main stars, Paul Hogan and Shane Jacobson, would be spending a lot of time in 2 shots and close ups in a car with a overexposed background whizzing past, we wanted a stock that handled the range of exposure that I would be confronted with.”
