Oliver Wood: Anamorphic Close Focus

From ICG Magazine, Watership Down by Pauline Rogers (May 2000)

With most of U-571 planned for two cameras-- handheld, with occasional use of Steadicam-- Wood opted for Cooke S4 lenses and Arri cameras...

... Although known as an ardent supporter of filming features in the anamorphic format, Wood quickly realized that Super 35 would better serve this waterbound picture. "It was logical," he proclaims. "When it says 'close focus' in anamorphic you are usually at two or three feet-- try that in a submarine. We needed the one-foot distance for the confinements of the subs."
