Rachel Morrison Looks to Anton/Bauer Batteries
Cinematographer Trusts HyTRON 140s to Power Recent Feature Film
Anton/Bauer is the battery of choice for the latest generation of up-and-coming cinematographers. When selecting batteries for her latest film, cinematographer Rachel Morrison utilised Anton/Bauer products to fuel the production of Some Girl(s), starring Kristen Bell and Adam Brody.
“Using Anton/Bauer batteries is like buying good glass [lenses]” says Morrison, who employed Anton/Bauer’s HyTRON 140 batteries to power her cameras. “Although the cameras and the technology surrounding them are changing rapidly, I can always fall back on Anton/Bauer batteries, as they stay compatible with the current technology and are the gold standard.”
During production, Morrison used the ARRI ALEXA digital camera and the HyTRON 140s. “The thing that I care about as the operator is that the camera is well-balanced, and I get that with Anton/Bauer products.”
Anton/Bauer’s HyTRON 140s are ideally suited to power the demands of today’s HD equipment and offset the weight of camera lenses. The batteries feature an enhanced RealTime display indicating fuel gauge and remaining run-time data simultaneously. The display incorporates readouts of hours, minutes and remaining capacity, making battery change decisions easy.
Morrison also used Anton/Bauer batteries on other recent films, including Sundance winner Fruitvale Station. “Anton/Bauer always manages to find its way on the sets I work on, probably because it’s such an industry standard. In this ever-changing digital revolution, I take comfort knowing that Anton/Bauer is one of the few constants I can always depend on.”
