Mr Malcom’s List: The ALEXA Mini LF shoots for The Big ScreenMarc Ehrenbold
Based on the book by the same name, Mr Malcom’s list unfolds in a world that resembles Regency England, giving off a distinctly Jane Austen vibe, with its Empire-waisted gowns and masquerade balls. The casting team have assembled an impressive selection of buzzed-about young professionals such as Theo James (the Insurgent Series0, Ashley Park (Emily in Paris) and Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat).
Directed by Emma Holly Jones, being her first feature debut, Mr Malcom’s List follows Julia Thistlewaite, a highly strung woman who is on the hunt for a husband in London. When she is rejected by a date, and later finds out this is because she didn’t meet his secret list of 10 attributes that make a perfect wife, she gets her own back by inviting her best friend (a penniless clergyman’s daughter) to snare Mr Malcolm by faking the 10 attributes.
All this is filmed on the ALEXA Mini LF, the go-to camera for drama series, feature films and commercials alike. The ALEXA Mini LF combines the compact size and low weight of the well known ALEXA Mini with the large-format Alexa LF Sensor. This camera brings exciting opportunities and creative possibilities to Arri’s large-format camera systems.
The ALEXA Mini LF features 16 recording formats, making it suitable for universal use in large format and super 35 productions. Possessing credits such as Batman, The Power Of The Dog and Dune, its no wonder this nifty camera was chosen for Mr Malcom’s List.
