RED Congratulates Shot on RED Film Festival Winner "The Wheel"

December 11, 2012

Shot on RED Film Festival Grand Prize winner The Wheel directed by John Roberts

Last week, RED Studios Hollywood hosted the first Shot on RED Film Festival, a showcase of short independent projects shot on RED cameras and delivered in 4K. Over two nights at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles, RED screened the films of 36 finalists from an entry pool of over 300 films.

The Grand Prize of a RED EPIC was The Wheel directed by John Roberts. Motion Arts Pro Daily gave some background on the film prior to the festival:

“One person who saw the film called the visual style ‘Seuss-punk’ instead of steampunk,” says Roberts. “The look just reminded him of a Dr. Seuss book.” The Wheel’s imaginative visual style is the result of meticulously detailed art direction and set design, as well as Roberts’s own background as an animator. Indeed, the film marks Robert’s first step away from animation.

Shot on RED Film Festival submission guidelines and dates for 2013 will be announced next month. Please direct any questions to shotonredfestival@red.com
