Sundance tech innovation

The Jan. 18 screening of “Love God” at the Sundance Film Festival will mark the first time a feature shot on video and transferred to 35mm film will unspool at the event.

“Love God,” directed by Frank Grow and produced by Good Machine, has been pre-sold in Japan, though no U.S. distributor has been lined up. It was lensed using Sony’s DVW-700 digital Betacam recorder.

According to Laurence Thorpe, VP of acquisition systems for Sony Electronics’ Business and Professional Group, a short film consisting of digitally lensed clips was demoed last year.

“This year, with ‘Love God,’ we’ve reached a more mature phase of digital cinematography. It’s a new alternative for filmmakers,” he said.

Thorpe will oversee Sony’s Digital Screening Room at the New Media Center at Sundance. Presentations will include widescreen technologies and digital camcorders. — Katharine Stalter
