A SYNTHETIC RELATIONSHIP
New Line Cinema's "S1mone", stars Al Pacino, Catherine Keener and a top secret actress playing S1mone. The film is shot with 24p high definition (HiDef) digital technology. Andrew Niccol directs from his screenplay.
Premise of "S1mone" centers on a Hollywood producer (Pacino) who decides to digitally create an actress when a star walks off his picture. The virtual actress, who everyone thinks is a real person, becomes an overnight sensation.
The Sony HDW-F900 24P HDCAM features a 24 frame progressive rate identical to a 35mm movie camera."The film community refers to this system as video and has yet to embrace it completely, but it's strictly digital photographic imaging, with the look and feel of 35mm film", says S1mones's DP.
"In basic terms it's a computer with a lens and eye piece on it that allows an artist to create his or her art."
