Codex Onboard Recorders have recently been used to capture ARRIRAW from the ARRI Alexa camera on several independent features. Shot in Georgia, Depression era crime drama "Lawless" was directed by John Hillcoat and shot by Benoit Delhomme and is now in post production. Also in post production, "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World", stars Steve Carell and Keira Knightley and was directed by Lorene Scafaria and shot by Tim Orr. "Ruby Sparks", starring Annette Bening has just started shooting in Los Angeles. It is being directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, and shot by Matthew Libatique, ASC.
A Codex ARRIRAW workflow can be cost-effective for independent features because the Codex Digital Lab or Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X can be used to create all dailies deliverables (ARRIRAW files for the final DI, DPX files for VFX, MXF files for editorial etc.) In the case of "Lawless", a Codex Digital Lab was installed in the cutting rooms and connected directly to the Avids being used for editorial.
