D.R.A.K.E. the adventure of building a digital cinema camera*
Markus Rupprecht/The DRAKE project , Steffen Hacker/unexpected gmbh

What if you could make a wish... Let’s say you are both a director and a DOP and plan to do a really big no budget fantasy movie. No money to rent the good stuff. What’s left besides wishing? Do it yourself! Build a camera and a complete low budget but high quality digital workflow!
