P+S Technik has congratulated the whole team of “Lupin” and the production company Gaumont on the well-deserved success of the series, released on January 8.
DP Christophe Nuyens shot the series with the P + S Technik Technovision 1.5X lenses in Paris. He was looking for full frame anamorphics and found the lenses beautiful because of their nice vintage look. The 1.5X squeeze factor helped him in the end to have a 2:1 aspect ratio for release.
Christophe Nuyens says: “The look is different from anything else. Shooting wide open for example the lenses give a slightly smoky and soft feel which helped a lot in locations were using smoke was not allowed”.
