My First Look at the RED Epic Camera

I ran across a short feature film product using the RED Epic.

Testimonial-1

I took my girls to a skating rink in Boulder yesterday for a birthday party and when we got there, there was a short feature film being shot at the skating rink.

I asked one of the crew what the project was and he said it was a short feature called Delirium, he said it was a psychological thriller that takes place mostly in Europe.

They were using a RED camera, I don’t know anything about that line of cameras but it looked like the Epic.

I was amazed how uncomfortable the DP because her neck looked so uncomfortable. I guessing they rented the camera and didn’t know how to outfit it properly.

The main actor looked a little like Zac Efron, but my wife watched this footage and said it wasn’t.

Boy she seemed really uncomfortable with the camera.

I looked at the monitor feed, and the footage coming off the RED look very nice. The natural light looked good at 4:30pm in the afternoon.

I was amazed how fast they kept moving around the rink, it seemed very unscripted, like they were mostly trying to get B-roll. The director would yell out where they should be.

“Director Kunz” was on the clapper board, but I could find anything about him online. Someone told me the production company is World’s Fair Pictures. Update, the director in this case was Cru Ennis and the actor was Lee Roy Kunz.

Must be a small film, not worried about getting model releases for all the people in the video (extras).

Really wish I had a 70-200mm 2.8

Boulder is not really known as a hot bed for film making, so it was fun running in to this production.
