DOP Tom Wade on his lens choice:
“I chose to shoot this on a 21mm Cooke S4 as I felt it was the most ‘complete’ lens technically and artistically given the brief of this being a fashion job and one take on Steadicam. The main things I took into consideration were: Spherical, weight, size, T-stop, close focus and image quality with no filtration. Ultimately this lens offered the most pleasing wider and closer field of view given the location layout and the image rendition was the perfect mix of modern, low distortion and aberration but still a softness and roundness to the image that felt right for this job. As I was riding the Iris throughout the take the smoothness of the aperture blades changing stop was important as well. I have to give huge thanks and admiration to Rick Woolard (Steadicam) and Phil Hardy (Focus) who really nailed this technically ambitious shot.   ”
