Wenders, pubcaster WDR team for digital film slate

'Radikal' comprised of five films shot with Sony 24p HDCAM

BERLIN — Wim Wenders’ Road Movies Filmproduktion and regional pubcaster WDR have agreed to produce a slate of films to be shot with new state-of-the-art digital film cameras.

The “Radikal Digital” project will initially comprise five films to be made with the new Sony 24p HDCAM film camera as well equipment from Digi Beta and Digital Consumer Systems. According to Road Movies, the project will “venture down new avenues in filmmaking in terms of the visuals, content and aesthetics.”

The films are being made in cooperation with the Filmstiftung North Rhine-Westphalia state subsidy board, and the digital post-production will be done at the visual effects and production company Das Werk, Road Movies’ parent company.

With “Radikal Digital,” Road Movies, WDR and Filmstiftung NRW are looking to support local filmmaking talent from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The films’ production costs will be in the low-budget area, and although pics are targeted for TV, theatrical releases will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Wenders, a member of the board at Das Werk, Das Werk L.A. and local champion of digital cinema, will be on hand to help and guide new filmmakers.
