Mike Leigh’s Olympics Film “A Running Jump” Captured on Codex
London, UK –Codex Digital, the leading developer of digital media recorders and media management systems for film and television production, today announces that Codex Onboard Recorders were used with ARRI Alexa cameras on Mike Leigh’s short film A Running Jump.
A Running Jump was one of four short films commissioned by BBC Films and Film4 for the London 2012 Festival. All four films premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 24th and will be screened on the BBC and Channel 4 during the London 2012 Festival. Funding came from the National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributor and Creative Scotland.
Written and directed by Mike Leigh, and shot by long-time collaborator Dick Pope, BSC, in East London, A Running Jump (A Thin Man Films Production) features a mostly young cast in a reflection on athletics in general, and running in particular, although it also features taxis and dodgy second-hand cars.

They include the Codex Onboard M and S recorders, the Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X, the Codex Digital Lab and the Codex Vault S, each of which provides powerful tools for metadata management, quality control, dailies generation and archiving.
