    Don't know if any of you guys watched the show on netflix. I started watching this week and I'm enjoying it very much. It has a very unique look, using a lot of practicals to actually light and a blueish grey coloring going on.

    Pepe Avila del Pino is the cinematographer and there is a very interesting interview at nofilmschool.com where he explains how he got the look from the Varicam. But one thing he said that I found odd (at least I never tried it). He said he used 4400k white balance for every shot, interior and exterior, and never used a single filter on the lights.

    Here's the full article:

    Take care.

    I'm going to guess they didn't shoot raw. So shooting 4400k provided a baked-in consistent blue tint to the entire show.

    This:

    "And for day interiors, one thing that I pitched to Jason was to let the shadows fall and let the darkness take over a little bit of the frame, even if it’s a bright day outside. That gives a sense that there’s some sort of hiding. Kind of like when you go into a cave, and the only light is coming from outside, and it's falling fast into darkness."

    I think camera work and lighting is quite awesome on Ozark - the dark look is right up to my alley, also the Varicam looked surprisingly good.
    Really enjoyed the whole season, and watched it again without audio, so I can concentrate on light and camera.

    Yeah, I've been obsessed with the "dark look" myself lately. I was really digging the vibe of this entire series.

    I got to work on a couple things shot on the Varicam LT and shot a little promo project with it, I absolutely love that camera. The dual native ISO is incredible and the color science is really nice. Would definitely get one if I had the money. It is better than the C300 amd has less noise in low light than the Alexa.

    A mate of mine just shot a piece on the Varicam LT with Zeiss Jenna lenses and it looks SICK! I mean REALLY REALLY good. There are aspects of the image he achieved that you KNOW you can't get with just any "comparable professional" camera and lenses.
