Kozachik and his team used Mitchell 35mm cameras on The Nightmare Before Christmas. So why make the move to digital? "We were convinced that we could save time with some sort of digital photography," Kozachik explains. "Corpse Bride came
along just about the time that most of the key components were coming available to put together a complete, cost-effective system." After testing cameras from several manufacturers, the team chose the EOS 1D Mark II for its performance on dark shots – an
important factor to consider when shooting a movie with much gloomy, atmospheric lighting.
