Are news reporters going to start using the RED Epic as a field camera?
Well, not exactly, but Get-Kinetic exhibited to NBC 10′s Harry Hairston, and the crew from Studio TEN Creative Group why RED is changing the industry.
Studio TEN and Get-Kinetic combined efforts to create spots to promote Hairston’s investigative reporting for NBC 10. Studio TEN’s Mat Mezer directed each spot, and brought on Kevin Hackenberg to direct photography. The creative team wanted a gritty feel to the spots and had come to the table with a great concept and a number of great locations. On the scout, Kevin was able to add to the the creative by recommending some of his favorite locations that portray a cinematic underbelly to Philadelphia.
Supplied with Get-Kinetic’s in-house RED Epic, super-speed primes, grip package and a car rig, the team created impressive 5K original images in very low light conditions.
The spots are airing now, so tune in to NBC 10 to check them out or check them out here…
The peaceful, blossoming, rolling hills of Williamsport PA? Yeah, we got that B-roll! Coming into the “busy season”, the Get-Kinetic camera crew is hustling near and far to find the best images for (arguably) the best image machine on the market: the Epic, of course. Last week we had journeyed half way across the great commonwealth of PA to Williamsport (a few miles short from the famous Hackenberg Apiaries!) There we joined up with Palmer Enfield, the Red Maiden herself, for an interview/b-roll day for MC3 productions. Being the first day to hit 70° and clear skies, it was beyond ideal for some outdoor beauty shots.
