Santhosh Sivan gets experimental


Cinematographerdirector Santosh Sivan seems excited with the way the test shoot with the Red Dragon digital camera has shaped up.
He says, “It’s one of the most advanced cameras, and is still a prototype. This is the first time that we are testing the camera, and we did a test shoot with Suriya and Malavika Rampradeep, a Bharatanatyam dancer. Along with the camera, we also tested a high zoom lens. A couple of other cinematographers and students were also part of the test shoot.”
He adds, “We will be the first to shoot with this camera on November 15 (for his film with Lingusamy and Suriya). The best thing is, though people always connect Bollywood with India, south is proving to be the place for technological advancements.”
