Those who know me, know that I have a love for cameras and the capturing of dynamic imagery, and I have an unmatched love for the power and precision of the RED products. And now in a special behind-the-scenes featurette director James Gunn and cinematographer Henry Braham are taking us inside the making of The Suicide Squad and they go into how RED Digital took the process and look of this film to the next level.
Watch the new featurette below:
“The way this movie is shot is the way I’ve wanted to shoot every movie in my brain and haven’t been able to until this film,” said James Gunn, director of The Suicide Squad. “From the beginning, one of the main goals of The Suicide Squad was to keep it alive, keep it visceral and keep it real. One of the pathways to doing that is the way we used the cameras. The way we’re able to use the RED and our other rigs to pull us together in a way that makes it feel as if it’s real.”
Within this new featurette, we fully get to immersive ourselves in the process that Gunn and his returning cinematographer Henry Braham took to capture The Suicide Squad and the results look utterly amazing. Not only is the standard of the imagery out of this world, but the nimbleness and flexibility of the RED rigs allowed Gunn and Braham to capture imagery like we’ve never seen before and all of this adds to the narrative punch of the movie.
In addition to taking a look inside the making of the film, fans are also treated to some next level footage and it’s awesome to get a further taste of the crazy that is set to arrive on the big screen in The Suicide Squad.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Suicide Squad:
Imprisoned convicts of Belle Reve penitentiary are sent as members of Task Force X to the South American island of Corto Maltese to destroy Jotunheim, a Nazi-era prison and laboratory which held political prisoners and conducted experiments.
Get ready for an amazing rollercoaster of a ride when The Suicide Squad arrives in cinemas on August 5.
