The work on Official Secrets is the Sony VENICE's first ever outing on a European feature.

Speaking about the project, Movietech Managing Director John Buckley said: "This is the very first time the VENICE has been used on a feature in Europe. Naturally we are extremely proud to be providing Florian with both the camera and lens package for the shoot. The Sony is proving to be an important investment for us, we're delighted with the interest it has generated not only from our colleagues in features but from all areas of our industry."
