The remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 cult film Evil Dead has become the first New Zealand-based feature film to shoot with the new Sony F65 camera.
Two major Hollywood feature films have so far used the recently-released high-end digital camera: M Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fi film After Earth (starring Will Smith) and, it is understood, Oblivion (starring Tom Cruise), which will both be released next year.
Evil Dead, directed by Fede Alvarez and filmed by cinematographer Aaron Morton, was filmed in Auckland in May. Alvarez said he had seen some of the footage from After Earth, which was filmed in Costa Rica.
"I had seen some demonstration footage from the Sony F65 and the thing that struck me straight away was that it didn't have a sterile digital feeling to it," Morton said in a statement released by Sony. "It had all the resolution and other features that the numbers promised, but it did not have all of those high specs at the expense of a good looking picture."
