REVIEW OF THE YEAR
It was high summer and the only place to go was Cornwall for our August issue. Captain Poldark beckoned with the show’s new, less heightened look. We also celebrated a first: the first zero-G sequence in a movie with The Mummy 2017 and we acknowledged the camera sensor as the new emulsion. September fell and it was war with the tech behind the last instalment in the Planet of the Apes trilogy. We committed to our lighting obsession with a special feature which included a new term, digital gelling. Our October issue was our largest of the year with features on streaming favourites Stranger Things and Transparent and a slant on modern broadcasting with an analysis of the Champion’s League final extravaganza, a game changer indeed. November turned our all-seeing eye to the world of equipment rental with a special feature. We also announced our short-film challenge, discovered the untold story behind Winnie-the-Pooh and picked apart the evolution of the smart monitor. Onto December and another special feature, this time on lenses from the highest profile movie to a roughed-up Minicam. Our main case study was a BBC production retelling the story of the Gunpowder plot. This was a meeting of movie disciplines and crew with televisual rules. It was a great year for the industry and for Definition . Here’s to another one. – it’s off to a great start with the inside story of Darkest Hour .
