I shot one of these low budget Doritos Superbowl commercials for director Mark Freiburger. And it’s competing with the best of the best in the ad world this year as one of five finalists in the Doritos Crash The Super Bowl Contest.It was a great opportunity to work with Mr. Freiburger and producer Nate Scoggins while trying out a new set of Cooke iPanchro prime lenses on the Red Epic. Working with the lenses was a breeze, their markings clear and focus silky smooth. Image quality is comparable to higher-end s4i and s5i Cooke lenses but there aren’t as many focal lengths available in the iPanchro set and they aren’t as fast. Cooke Optics is receiving an Academy Award of Merit this year For its continuing innovation in the design, development, and manufacture of advanced camera lenses that have helped define the look of motion pictures over the last century.
