Sony gifts state-of-the-art camera to WCU

Written by 

art filmcameraThe film program at Western Carolina University scored a professional $100,000 motion picture camera from Sony, presented during the recent Controlled Chaos Film Festival featuring student productions.

 

The F65 CineAlta camera offers cutting-edge technology and a higher resolution than any other digital motion picture camera available today. Sony had roughly 400 pre-orders for the camera worldwide when the company began shipping the F65 in January 2012, and this year gifted less than a dozen to up-and-coming film programs across the nation.

“We are thrilled to be selected to receive one of these cameras, which are designed to shoot major feature films to be projected in the biggest and best theaters in the world,” said Jack Sholder, director of WCU’s Motion Picture and Television Production Program. “This camera will help us better prepare our students to work in the industry and to understand and gain experience with some of the most high-end equipment there is.”

Sony representatives will return to campus to host a learning session related to the camera when it is outfitted and look forward to hearing from students about how they are using the F65 to create films and the details of their experiences with the equipment.
