    The camera was Scarlet-W, and the glass was Zeiss B-Speeds for the majority of the scene work and Clavius lenses for the interviews. Occasionally we broke out the Kinoptik 9.8mm, Angenieux 25-250 mkI, Leica R 100mm macro, Canon FD 300mm, and even an old Kowa 6 MF lens for one shot.

    We shot the entire 6 part series in 62 days on location in Istanbul with a documentary sized budget. We're talking a tiny fraction of what The Witcher had, so I'm really proud of what we were able to accomplish. However, I'm curious to hear feedback on the hybrid format or anything else. Check it out on Netflix January 24th. Thanks for your time :)

    I've seen the trailer and it looks amazing! All the kind of recreations have been done with the same camera/lens equipment?

    Thanks fellas! Yes Julen...everything was shot on Scarlet-W with Zeiss B-Speeds.

    Looks like its actually called "Rise of Empires: Ottoman" and not the original title "Empire Rising: Ottoman".

    That looks like it's right up my alley. I remember when History Ch and Discovery and the like aired great stuff like this all of the time, before they decided to just do cheap "reality TV" instead.

    wow looks amazing. love the look overall. great lighting for interviews. great use of vintage lenses my main issues
    1- I wasn't sure it was a documentary from the promo material, the trailer made it look like a series, so totally not on your team.
    2- sometimes the costumes looked too 'new'

    im just amazed what you acoomplished with the gear and the time. congrats

    Very nice work Clint. Once again proves that the lowly Scarlet-W can create great images.

    Why did they choose to use an SW? Was it that much cheaper than the other options?
