The script of this film is based on the Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man And The Sea”. The old man in this movie doesn’t hunt fish but is a poor sheep farmer in a small village in Kazakhstan. Guests barely visit the family, but when one day in winter visitors arrive in an expensive SUV, a mystical history begins for the old man and his grandson.
The movie is shot with ARRI Alexa cameras in ProRes with Log-C color space on location near Almaty, Kazakhstan. Silverstack SET is used for previewing material with log2video conversion as well as file management and metadata handling on set.
