Urbancroft Films Creative Director Martyn Robertson was approached by Panasonic to direct a cinematic documentary film celebrating the Shetland festival of Up Helly Aa. Using Panasonic’s latest technology to film in 4K and 8K, the shoot would test the new Panasonic 8K prototype camera prior to it’s launch, looking at how it coped in low and in high light, such as filming fire.

In addition to filming in 8K, the team also shot in 4K with the Panasonic EVA1 and the Varicam 35. The completed film, narrated by 2017 Jarl, Lyall Gair, can be seen here in HD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEYOR5lbOHg.
