AbelCine sat down with DP Terry Zumalt and 1st AC Devin Keebler on Netflix's Last Chance U, a series that follows players from junior college football teams as they compete to reach the next level.
This cinematic series is shot with Sony VENICE, a robust camera chosen for its exceptional performance in the rough conditions faced by the crew during a typical season, including below-freezing temperatures, extreme heat, and other inclement weather. This season, the team utilized the Sony VENICE Extension System, allowing them to get right in players' faces for a truly immersive and emotionally charged viewing experience.
