IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA

UNA STRAORDINARIA OPERA in 4K HDR HFR

This extraordinary edition of La Bohème was directed by one of Italy’s greatest film directors, Ettore Scola during the 60th Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago Puccini, Italy. The sets were designed by his close collaborator Luciano Ricceri. La Bohème boasts an exceptional cast made up of the extraordinary Daniela Dessi in the role of Mimi, Fabio Armiliato as Rodolfo, Alessandro Luongo as Marcello and Alida Berti in the role of Musetta.
DBW Communication, in co-production with Rai Com and with the support of Eutelsat Communications, filmed ‘La Bohème’, the well-known opera by Giacomo Puccini, using the latest 4K technologies.
For such an innovative production, dedicated to the television and cinema distribution, DBW Communication employed six 4K Sony F55 cameras, one 4K OBVan, several certified cinema 4K lenses, and a new Sony server able to film up to four 4K streams at the same time. The unicity of this production was assured by the choice of the HFR format (High Frame Rate), which means 50 frames per second (i.e. double the frames usually captured in television productions) that offers a sharpness and fluidity never seen before in the shooting of an opera.

LA BOHÈME

UNA STRAORDINARIA OPERA CINEMATOGRAFICA in 4K HFR

DBW Communication, in co-production with Rai Com, presents “The Barber of Seville”, the famous opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini with an italian libretto by Cesare Sterbini, based on Pierre Beaumarchais’s french comedy Le Barbier de Séville (1775).
Rossini’s Barber has proven to be one of the greatest masterpieces of comedy within music and has been described as the opera buffa of all “opere buffe”. Even after two hundred years, its popularity on the modem opera stage attests to that greatness.
“Il Barbiere di Siviglia” by DBW is worldwide the first lyric opera to be shot in high dynamic range 4K. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) and WCG (Wide Color Gamut) systems are the new development of the 4K standard and they are able to guarantee an extraordinary color depth as
well as a never before seen strong contrast between the bright parts and the dark parts of the image.
The production has been realized at the wonderful historic Teatro Regio in Turin with 8 shooting points. The Sony PMW-F55 cameras – in live setup and all equipped with Prime Lenses Optics – were adopted.

AMATE SPONDE

DOCUMENTARIO IN LAVORAZIONE

“Amate Sponde” is a symphony for images and music on the body of Italy which tells of its fragile naturalistic and geological beauty without neglecting the wounds inflicted on the environment and the territory in recent decades. The environmental issue, once addressed only by ecological movements and their supporters, is today the first headline in the media on a global scale because from the worrying predictions of a decade ago we are approaching a catastrophic reality for our survival on this planet.
The project aims to photograph the current state of our country, observing the mistakes made in the past and looking up towards a sustainable development that passes through those avant-gardes in the scientific, technological and cultural fields that are already showing us the way forward.
