My brother, Alexei Berteig, is an insanely talented cinematographer and director living and working in Beijing, China. He recently bought himself an Arri Alexa, a digital cinema camera that retails for no less than $60,000 in our part of the world. This camera is widely being adopted as the new favorite of cinematographers everywhere with many claiming it even rivals the Red One.
The camera was recently used to shoot “The Avengers” and the upcoming James Bond film “Skyfall”. It’s a beautiful machine and I am insanely jealous.
Anyways, the point is Alexei has launched a new blog to document his experiences with the Alexa and to discuss cinematography and filmmaking. Head over to www.alexei-alexa.com to check it out.
