Run Lola Rungreenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread
Does anyone know what kind of camera they used to shoot the video portions of Run Lola Run? It was very poor quality. I'm thinking it might even be VHS, it looks worse than Hi8.

I don't know the answer but I was wondering the exact same thing. I actually think they wanted that look, but it sure was a nasty quality. It even seemed like it wasn't a direct image but filmed off a monitor or something!

ONE OF THE MAIN POINTS OF RUN LOLA RUN IN MY OPINION IS THAT IT DIFFERED FROM THE "HOLLYWOOD MILLION DOLLAR FLICKS" PATTERN BY MAKING IT MORE OF A 'HOME VIDEO STYLE" MOVIE

on the voice over to the dvd, the director says they wanted that crappy look. it's just one of lots of styles used; split screens, animation and photographic stills being others. as for that last comment about million dollar hollywood pictures, run lola run cost way over a million dollars, and i think the production values are pretty damn sexy.

I worked with one of the digital FX coordinators on 'Run Lola Run', on a sci-fi TV series called 'Star Hunter', and I believe they used a PAL Canon Elura2 MC for the video FX, and then in post degraded the image, either by recording in wide and in post zooming into a closeup or some other plugin way. Anyway, it's a fairly simple effect to produce, even with the top end cameras.
