I am ecstatic to announce that the first RED Weapon 8K camera in the world has landed in my hands in Los Angeles.
This larger format size and high resolution are extremely interesting and important to me. It holds so much creative potential. The 8K VV is essentially the first proper VistaVision+ digital cinema camera ever made, and for somebody like me who enjoys making bigger than life motion pictures it's a beautiful thing.
I'd like to thank RED and Jarred Land in particular for putting the tremendous effort in developing this powerful motion picture camera and getting it into my hands.
This will come with me on my next 8 week shoot, but I want images from this camera to end up on Cinema Screens, UHD Broadcast, Streaming, Special Exhibition, and IMAX theaters.
