The trailer looks like the movie was shot very beautifully. Stephen Murphy posts here sometimes and I'd love to here his process in photographing this.

The AC looks like hes hiding behind the lens... they don't like there photo to be taken. ;)

Hi Rob,

The teaser trailer was photographed by Mark Dawson (who also directed the final movie) so i cant take any credit for that. I think Mark shot that on Xdcam.
The actual short was photographed by yours truly on RED. I've blogged a little about it here.
And here are a few frame grabs to give you a sense of how it looks. Ive gone into more detail on my blog and added some lighting diagrams and a few more frame grabs. Hope this helps,

This Production has posted a Behind the Scenes Featurette for "Absolute" on Vimeo here featuring plenty of facetime with their dashing young DP:-)
On a slightly more professional note the BTS footage was shot by a filmmaker and photographer named Ed Thomas www.edthomas.net on his Canon 5DMK2 and it looks beautiful - i think he was using nikon prime lenses on the Canon - i was really impressed by how well the canon looked in low light. You can see a 720P version on the Vimeo site as well.

Good grief, it's Red not looking like total junk!

How'd I miss this first time round?

I love it! Excellent use of the double-negative (correctly too, mind you) to keep a synical attitude and negative vibe whilst actually conferring praise. Brilliant!

Looks nice, but still looks like RED to me.
