Experimenting in 3D

Shooting Kalina confirmed something for me that I had come to realize about two years ago. While 3D is not necessarily my favorite way to experience entertainment, I truly appreciate and enjoy the additional processes and technical consideration necessary to shoot 3D.

Red Digital Cinema Cameras: Epic, Scarlet, and One

Reducation 2010

(I am a nerd.) This past December, I attended Reducation at Red Studios in Hollywood.  This was a 5-day immersion in the “Red Revolution”.  The first two days were primarily hands-on/practical testing of the Red ONE MX bodies.  Having worked with these cameras so much for the past 6 months, there was little new information
