Shoot a feature for $120K with GH5+Atomos

Watch cinematographer Krzysztof Sieniawski explain to Rodney Charters ASC (DP of ‘24’, Dallas, Magnum P.I. and others) how he and his team shot the action packed feature length docu-drama ‘Born for the Sabre’ using the Panasonic GH5 and Atomos monitor-recorders. The film, now airing on the History Channel, has an impressive big budget look, but was shot for just $120,000.

In this first episode Krzysztof talks how they delivered amazing images to screen by harnessing the Atomos Ninja Inferno, Panasonic GH5 and old Nikkor lenses with anamorphic adapters. They discuss the motivation behind the movie and why he believes it is the right time for this sort of historical action drama.
