Some DPs and Directors think Kowa Anamorphic lenses are not very good.. In some circumstances, I agree.. but I also think that used properly, understanding their limitations and strengths, they can produce amazing footage. In this BMW spec spot Director @chrisleclerc and DP @matthewrivera have Definitely produced some of that amazing footage ! Hats off guys to a beautiful piece of work!

"National Geographic Channel’s “Mars” is an ambitious thing, a series that’s part documentary, part drama about the first human Mars mission. Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and Michael Rosenberg are executive producers, with Everardo Gout directing, weaving together the interviews with space experts and the fictional narrative of the crew of the spaceship Daedalus as they attempt to set up a habitable colony on Mars."

Congrats to Director Andew Bujalski and Cinematographer Matthias Grunsky on their recent film "Results" which sold to Magnolia pictures before sundance! Matthais utilized Lensworks Rentals 6 lens Super Baltar set for a beautiful look on this film!
Super Baltars are probably the most beautiful and natural lenses you can find for your modern alexa or red. they render skin tones naturally and have a less contrasty color palette than modern glass. they have a cool blue flare and wide open can exhibit some softness. Many famous movies of the 1960-1970s were shot on these lenses, most notably the godfather, hitchcocks the birds
