** COOKE ANAMORPHIC/I AND S4/I PRIMES BRING THE
ADVENTURE OF MAGICAL REALISM TO THE SCREEN IN
“THE WATER MAN”
Please find attached and below cinematographer Matt Lloyd’s experience shooting The Water Man using Cooke Anamorphic/i lenses and S4/i primes.
This David Oyelowo film lensed by Matt Lloyd finds its own style, ‘due to the choice of lensing and environment’ -
Leicester, UK – 07 December 2021– Cinematographer Matt Lloyd, ASC, CSC, has used Cooke Optics S4/i prime lenses extensively since they first came out – including the pilot for the limited television series “Fargo.” But in discussions with director, producer and actor David Oyelowo, they both knew that the look of “The Water Man” would need to be more majestic than a spherical lens could provide. Then, Lloyd met up with Michael Koerner of Koerner Camera of Portland, OR, who would provide the lenses and cameras for the project.
“It was Michael who suggested that I really needed to see the Cooke Anamorphic/i lenses at his Pacific Northwest Lens Summit,” said Lloyd. “Honestly, I didn’t even know Cooke made an anamorphic lens. I was leaning towards another manufacturer’s anamorphics, but I trust Michael. There was a Cooke representative at the Summit and after a few minutes, I was sold on the Cookes. The anamorphics would perfectly match the S4/i lenses that I would be using for VFX shots. By the end of production, I was amazed. You would think that Cooke had been making anamorphics forever.
