Bryan Elliot, CEO of The GoodBrain Digital Studios, recently introduced a new web series titled Looks Easy on Entrepreneur’s website and YouTube channel. Shot on a kitted EPICMYSTERIUM-X, Looks Easy showcases the truth behind activities that seem simple when watched from the comfort of home. The second installment launches today and brings in Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson to show how difficult it is to hit a baseball thrown by a major league pitcher. RED went behind the scenes with Elliot and Wilson to get a closer look.
RED recently celebrated the Grand Opening of our flagship store in the heart of New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. Located at 125 Grand Street, RED’s new building highlights its 150-year history with pieces of its original construction, including two perfect cast iron support arches and red brick facade.
Recently, Freefly released behind the scenes footage of filmmaker Mark Lewis’ upcoming film that was shot in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between South and North Korea. There are a vast number of restrictions when shooting in the DMZ, but Freefly was given exclusive access through the maze of bunkers – providing viewers with an in-depth experience of what it’s like to navigate this unique terrain. Equipped with a REDEPIC and a MoVI, camera operators were able to create stunning shots that are otherwise not possible in the narrow confines of these surroundings. The transition of the camera from mounted jib to handheld was done seamlessly, in a matter of seconds, creating what Lewis considered to be a “million dollar shot”.
Watch the behind the scenes footage to see the MoVI in action, and take in the unbroken movement caught on REDEPIC, as they move free through the DMZ.
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced their nominees for the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Six series shot on RED received nominations this year – Bonnie & Clyde, Mob City, The Spoils of Babylon, The Originals, Justified, and returning winner House of Cards.
Go behind the scenes with RED as we explore The Mint 400, North America’s oldest active off-road desert race. Among the most grueling challenges in racing, The Mint pits drivers in twenty vehicle classes against 100 miles of desert – and each other.
The race – defunct between 1998 and 2008 – was revived when Mad Media owners Matt and Josh Martelli purchased it from the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts Group.
