I recently saw this film several weeks ago.This musical adaptation of Victor Hugo's epic novel set in 19th century France,staged in 43 countries,translated into 21 languages,and seen by over 60 million people worldwide. There have been at least 14 film versions. I really want to concentrate on the technical side of the film,showing camera,glass and lighting issues.After testing a wide range of formats,including 3d,65mm,35mm,alexa,anamorphic,and spherical,eventually 35mm spherical package of Arricamlite with Arri/Zeiss master prime glass was used.For period production,film has more of those imperceptible qualities such as texture,patina and grain.The main unit consist of three cameras. A-cam operated by Zac Nicholson, who shot as close and as wide as possible on the actors. Band c cameras operated by Luke Redgrave and Vince McGahon, shot action on longer glass. On big days there were as many as ten cameras working on vatrious sets. A broad range of focal lengths provided invaluable flexibility on multiple cameras. Glass sizes went from 12mm to 150 mm, plus ultra primes from 8mm,10mm and 180mm. lighting the sets was a major challenge. Tstage housed a cafe set that had only solid ceilings. So they hung 15 tungsten light bulbs on the beams and played with it.This gives you an idea of the setups and cameras angles that went into this film. Ipersonally loved the overall look of the film and Arri was a beautiful choice for this dark period piece. i hope you enjoy this information and check out this amazing film.
