For a few members of the Videobred team, Easter weekend was spent with the Phantom Flex camera, capturing in slow motion things like eggs in mouse traps and Newkirk hitting a 300 pound block of ice with an axe. Over the weekend, they were able to capture a wide range of events in slow motion, such as a parade, archery, and break dancing.
Thanks to our friends at the Camera Department in Cincinnati, we were able to have a few days of hands-on training with the Phantom at Videobred and have some really cool footage to show for it.
Who needs beaches and Mai-Tais when you can have great Kentucky scenery and a camera? Videobred’s editor and shooter, Eric Stemen, spent his vacation last month driving around eastern Kentucky and shooting time lapses. His goal for the project was to create a two and a half to three minute video showcasing what the region is really like.

Today I’ll be discussing Look profiles for the RED Scarlet.
As you may know, the Scarlet came with a nice bit of software called RedCine-X Pro. We can use it to review footage, pull stills and do RAW color correction, among other things. But it can also be used to create custom Looks that can be loaded into the camera for use during production.
Over the summer you will be hearing from our interns. We’ve asked them to write about their experiences in the field. Interns Richard and Ashton, assisted Steve Hurst in shooting a time lapse downtown. Below is Richard’s take on the exciting day!
Visualizing a particular location over the course of hours, with all daily walks of life, can be a difficult task. Imagine a building, scraping the sky with sequenced brick, pillars protruding vertically following a pattern that gives the edifices a cool shadow effect when the sun is at that right angle. What I have described is Louisville’s own downtown Aegon Center. [..more]
