Codex Powers ARRIRAW Workflow for French/Italian Thriller “The Lookout”

Posted by on Sep 19, 2012

London, UK –  The Lookout (Le Guetteur), the new French-language crime thriller from Italian director Michele Placido (Crime Novel, Angel of Death) is a riveting tale of bank robbers, a sniper and hard-nosed cops that plays out in the meanest streets of Paris—it’s also one of the latest films to employ the Codex/ARRIRAW workflow.

Cinematographer Arnaldo Catinari shot the majority of the film with ARRI Alexa cameras, capturing ARRIRAW data on Codex Onboard M recorders. Codex Transfer Stations were employed on-set to process dailies, so that media from each day’s shoot could be delivered to the film’s editorial team, without the need for additional post-house processing. The result was a workflow that delivered imagery of the highest quality, while facilitating a production schedule of just nine weeks and a production budget of 14 million euros.
