This week, the first trailer for Ender’s Game was revealed.
The highly-anticipated adaption of Orson Scott Card’s epic science fiction novel showed footage for the first time publicly at CinemaCon last month. At the time, FirstShowing.net said “We truly are entering a new era of sci-fi, and while Blomkamp’s Elysium and Abrams’ Star Trek will lead the way in the summer, it’s Ender’s Game that will take us to even new heights this November.”
Shot on REDEPIC, directed by Gavin Hood, the film is released on November 1st, 2013.
This year at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, Guillermo Del Toro showed a new trailer for Pacific Rim with previously unseen footage. Like many convention previews, this trailer could have stayed in the vault unseen by the public at large. Thankfully, today, the WonderCon trailer for Pacific Rim hit the internet where it immediately generated all sorts of excitement.
Watch the trailer in HD and discover why Guillermo Del Toro called it “the perfect movie to shoot on RED.”
Sam Mestman who has taught post-production at REDucation has a new series on MovieMaker in the DIY category that describes his RED/Final Cut Pro X workflow in elaborate detail. Mestman says “On the most recent film I worked on using this workflow, I was able to get an assembly edit of the entire film done within two days of the film wrapping.”
At the NAB Show we announced the upgrade program to REDDRAGON® sensors. In what is surely another trade show first, RED is performing upgrades to the REDDRAGON sensor in a clean production facility live in our booth. To do this:
We took part of our manufacturing facility and moved it to the floor of NAB. The entire upgrade is being performed there just as it will be done on RED users’ cameras at our California facility.
All week at our booth at the NAB Show, RED is conducting one hour introductory courses of REDucation. In the introductory course at NAB, REDucation students shoot on a REDEPIC camera rig, learn post-production with REDCINE-X PRO, and watch their footage on the big screen in the booth.
The public is free to observe the course through each stage. The classes are held at 10am, 1pm and 4pm each day of NAB except Thursday when there is no 4pm class. Each REDucation class at NAB takes 40 students and is free to join. Register here for a class.
Las Vegas, NV — RED Digital Cinema is happy to announce its acquisition of Element Technica. Element Technica creates rugged accessories for the toughest production environments. Designed by filmmakers for filmmakers, Element Technica enjoys a great reputation among their peers in the cinema and broadcast industry. Given the numerous occasions RED and Element Technica products have been merged on set to provide elegant and durable performance, this announcement is not a surprising one. We are excited to welcome Element Technica into the RED family as the REDELEMENT division. We look forward to the great work we’ll do together.
The new sensor from RED Digital Cinema cameras that shoots 6K Resolution at 100 frames per second with impressive native dynamic range has arrived. The REDDRAGON® sensor translates to 9 times more resolution than High Definition and over 19 megapixels.
Once again proving Obsolescence Obsolete®, REDEPIC and SCARLET owners will be able to upgrade their existing sensors to REDDRAGON.
Those that believed in Jim’s vision when it was still an impossible dream, those that stood in line and paid deposits when everyone told them that RED was a scam, vaporware, snake oil, those that believed that everyone else’s “good” was not “good enough” — those are the early adopters and will be the first to experience REDDRAGON 6K via RED’s RED DRAGON™ sensor upgrade program.
