This was shot on EPIC with Red Pro Primes and converted and down rez'd to jpg directly from Red Cine X tiff files with no corrections, just in camera settings. It was lit entirely with par cans.

Kinda reminds me of that Justin Timberlake video shot on the EPIC monochrome.
I especially like the last shot of course!
How did you find the red pro primes?
I have a friend thinking of using them and they are keen to get away from still camera lenses but I wonder if they wouldn't be better with some nice vintage lenses such as Super Baltars or something.
I've never been near the RPP's tho and like most things Red you hear all kinds of varying rumours about them, a lot of which I'm sure are just completely made up.

The RPP's are pretty fast, sharp, and contrasty lenses. I think they are good lenses especially if you cant afford something like a master prime and thats the look you're after. They have a lot in common! I'm not a big fan of how they flare so I try to avoid that with RPP's. They are big bulky lenses which is another thing you hear people complain about.
Comparing them to Super Baltars though is apples and oranges.
