With budgets ranging from $1m to over $100m, each of the nominated productions used Codex digital recorders and workflow products to capture ARRIRAW from ARRI Alexa cameras.

Codex was the sole recording technology on Gravity, Prisoners, Her, Iron Man 3 and Ida, and the chief digital technology on The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Lone Ranger (mostly captured on film). The significant use of Codex on Captain Phillips and Rush enabled the production and post production teams to work with the full latitude of the original digital footage – a significant advantage on location shoots with changeable lighting conditions. Codex also proved invaluable in the VFX workflows of Gravity, Iron Man 3 and The Lone Ranger.

Speaking about his choice of Codex for Prisoners, Roger Deakins OBE BSC ASC commented, “I like the way the Codex equipment integrates so seamlessly with the Alexa camera.”

Gravity cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki AMC ASC remarked, “No other camera had the latitude and quality of the Alexa, and Codex allowed us to extract that. The amount of information and the quality of the information is far superior. It helped immensely on Gravity.”

Codex recording and workflow technology has been used on hundreds of motion picture productions worldwide. Recent and forthcoming releases to rely on Codex products include: Prisoners, The Wolf Of Wall Street, All Is Lost, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, A Winter's Tale, Maleficent, Need For Speed and Unbroken.
