Alpha 18K on "The Martian"

Ridley Scott’s latest movie was probably one of the most long-awaited movie of the year. Starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain, the movie is based on the novel "The Martian" from Andy Weir and has been shot by Dariusz Wolski, ASC. The story brings us on Mars with the astronaut Mark Watney, who, after a storm, has been left for dead by his crew on the planet.

Last February, we had a chance to meet Julian White, gaffer shooting the film on stage in Budapest. The Alpha 18KW was used pointing straight down, only equipped with the clear lens. This configuration provides the hard light needed for the film’s look.
