1st EPIC 5k 120 fps Underwater footage to surface!
Posted 11 April 2011 - 11:41 AM
I had the pleasure to recently shoot on a pre prodiction EPIC-M camera (#008 Ketch Rossi & Steve Gibby) and wanted to share some footy. I figured now would be a good time since we kick off NAB today. Here is some EPIC 5k footage shot at 120 fps and compressed to 1080 and uploaded to Vimeo. This is a teaser from a short film by Summer Rayne Oakes and myself. Keep in mind I did a very quick grade in redcine, dropped the blacks with a curve and left my highlights the way I intended. I was going for a blown out look but was amazed that with the Raw files I could bring back any of the highlights, nothing was actually clipped. The UW housing was built and provided by Michael Hasting of Aquavideo and the EPIC was made possible by Ketch of Ketch Rossi Studios. I want thank all the above for the support and helping make this shoot possible. Having had a glimpse of the future I can safely say that things are certainly looking up for RED and the world of digital cinema. I will follow up with a review soon but this was an incredible experience to say the least. Come back soon as I will post some R3Ds, BTS stills and video to follow. Cheers and see you at NAB.

What housing did you use for the camera? I was under the impression I had the only Epic housing and thats because we tooled it all in house here at Barnstormer.

Very impressive, 120fps as 5K is a big step forward for them.
