Les Revenants/The Returned/Rebound [8 ep dir by Fabrice Gobert & Frédéric Mermoud] series/HD (ARRI ALEXA), 2012-present; 1st season (8 ep), 2012; 2uc: Eric Blanckaert; Patrick Blossier: "ALEXA was my choice. Last year I used the camera on another series for Canal +, 'Mafiosa' season four, which was my first experience in digital. I come from a traditional film background and I was immediately comfortable with the ALEXA. The change in technology did not bother me and I was even surprised at not being nostalgic. The ALEXA helped me move from film to digital, although I also operate the camera and I'm used to checking my lighting through the camera viewfinder, so I lost my bearings a bit. For this reason I have had one additional person on my camera crew ever since I started working in digital: Julien Bullat. He's a DIT but it's more than that - he stands next to the camera and checks the image on the monitor; he's also responsible for the aperture and his presence was essential for all the shots filmed at dusk on 'Les Revenants'."
