Format: S16mm (Kodak)

Director: Reza Dolatabadi



Marking my first collaboration with Director Reza Dolatabadi, this video for Cassy entitled 'Back' is highly visceral and full of energy. A creative decision was made early on to keep the approach simple, and this resulted in us shooting the entire video handheld with a very small selection of wide-angle lenses. In addition, the entire piece was shot with a ninety-degree shutter angle, leading to a sharp and hyper-real sensation.

Cassy - 'Back' was originated on Kodak Double-X in the 1:85:1 aspect ratio and shot exclusively on the Arri 416. The final grade was performed by Toby Tomkins at CHEAT (London).

Film processing and scanning was provided by Cinelab (London).
