Have you ever seen an EPIC camera from RED? Not many people have because they are big and cumbersome and fragile and only used for big budget, large scale productions. Until recently that is.
Kevin Arnold brought a custom handheld EPIC camera on to Peak Chair this spring and captured Matt Elliot and Austin Ross ripping around Whistler’s celebrity lift. Kevin Arnold’s Vimeo blurb really sums up the video best, so here it is:
“This winter, I had an opportunity to shoot with the RED EPIC camera. The EPIC is typically used on large sets, but RED provided me with a custom, pared-down rig for handheld shooting. The idea was to create print-worthy stills and cinema-quality video at the same time, with the same camera. Though not without it’s challenges, the experiment was a success, and the still images will be featured in RED’s upcoming brochure for the camera.” – Kevin Arnold
