Camera Package and Lenses

Use a kodak digital stock throughout the movie. Kodak favors the warm reds.Shoot with an Alexa 65 because it is as good as film, great for both landcape and faces. Cook prime lenses 50mm to 190mm for sharpness and clarity but also carry an Optimo zoom 24mm-290mm for time. Carry three cameras and half a dozen iphones. Third camera to be used as social media coverage and always work with an A and a B camera to save time. Keep focal lenses wide for depth of field, favor long lenses only using the longer lenses to heighten Carol's feelings of isolation.
