Dubai-based cameraman, Nicolas Davidson, concluded the filming of a series of 90-second vignettes entitled Rediscover Lebanon for CNN. The vignettes hope to reintroduce Lebanon to the world as a tourist destination. “It was incredible to see how Beirut and Lebanon has changed, I was last there in 1994, not long after the war so to see a place back on its feet and prospering after such hard times was really encouraging. It is definitely worth rediscovering.” Nick Davidson, DoP. All seven films were shot on the Digi-Beta (DVW-790WSP). However, for B-roll, underwater, mounted shots and timelapse, Davidson shot with the PD150P and the Panasonic DVX100. “We also took a Polecam with us. This enabled us to do some great crane shots, with few constraints and at a fraction of the cost, allowing us to work as a two-man crew,” explains Davidson. Polecam operator, John Whyte, adds: "The polecam takes one person only 10 minutes to set up and can be rigged up to five metres in length.”
