Amazon Prime Original, PRIME JAPAN Shot With URSA Mini 4.6K

PostTue Mar 07, 2017 5:51 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Amazon Prime's original 4K documentary, "PRIME JAPAN," was shot with Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K.

"PRIME JAPAN" is a documentary about Japan. It picks up a variety of topics regarding Japan from traditional culture such as sushi, sake and Japanese swords to more modern culture which represents today's Japan such as design, fashion and modern architecture. The series takes great effort to capture the beauty of Japan with high quality 4K images, and one of its episodes, "WAGASHI (Japanese Sweets)," was shot entirely with URSA Mini 4.6K.

"This documentary is streamed via Amazon Prime, so we wanted to make a show which non Japanese people can also enjoy. The style of Japanese documentary is usually a director shoots with a compact camera for long hours and then picks up the best parts from enormous amount of footage. Of course, some documentaries from abroad could be created with the same style. However, I see a lot of documentaries from abroad which have both a great look and a strong message," said Takashi Chiba, DoP from Helmet Inc.
