Footsteps by Jeremy Benning – Shot on SIGMA Cine

Footsteps is a documentary short film from Canadian cinematographer Jeremy Benning, CSC, that looks at the work of foley artists Andy Malcolm, Goro Koyama and Sandra Fox. Generally speaking, foley is the art of creating and recording sound effects for motion picture to enhance the sound for the viewer. In this often overlooked profession, what you’re hearing isn’t always what you’re seeing on the big screen.

From Jeremy:

“I shot with a Canon C200 and Alexa Mini. I used the SIGMA 18-35mm T2 and 50-100mm T2 mostly, with a bit of Fuji Cabrio 19-90. They all cut well together. We didn’t use any filters on this project.

The 18-35mm is a fantastic documentary lens due to its small size, great range, very close min focus and T2 stop. It’s the kind of lens you’d want to be handheld and very near to your subject with. It provides a sense of intimacy and immersive-ness due to its small size and close range strength.”
