A Thirteen-Pound Wonder
This chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to provide a brief history of the Arriflex 35 in North America from the end of the Second World War up to the introduction of the 35mm Arriflex BL in 1972. The book argues that the Arriflex’s impact proved particularly marked in three areas: in the encouragement the camera provided for location shooting; in the options the camera gave cinematographers for intensifying visual style and content; and in the doors the camera opened for low-budget and independent production.
