Blackmagic Design announced today that URSA Mini Pro 4.6K was used as the main camera for the new Japanese documentary film "Tower of the Sun.” Pocket Cinema Camera was also used as the secondary camera for various scenes in the film.

As part of the theme pavilion of the Japan World Exposition Osaka in 1970, artist Taro Okamoto made a "Tower of the sun.” This new documentary pursues Taro Okamoto's message from his "Tower of the Sun” and the artist himself. Mr. Kosai Sekine, and award winning worldwide recognized film, commercial and music video director, directed the film, with Mr. Senzo Ueno serving as director of photography, who had numerous awards as director of photography and was also active as a director.

“I did not know much about ‘Tower of the Sun’ and Taro Okamoto, and studied them for six months. Many of Okamoto Taro's works use a lot of primary colors, and in this film I also wanted to make the primary colors stand out,” said Director Sekine.
