Footage I shot of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan on the RED ONE Digital Cinema Camera. I edited this piece together (using some footage from my previous Afghanistan clips) as a demo to show the capabilities of this new technology, and how it can bring quality, scalability, and longevity back to combat zone footage unseen since WWII/Viet Nam era. The actual resolution of the footage is 4096x2048: http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/3089/4krescomparisonchart800br8.jpg I only had 5 days with the camera in country, the footage has not been color corrected (I think it's best to see the footage before being "treated"). This video was edited off the proxies on a Mac Pro.
It is my hope that the DoD shows interest in assembling a specially trained team of service-members to film on this new equipment and provide footage to disseminate back to the public at a quality this generation deserves, both home and abroad.
Jason Wingrove of FXGuide recently interviewed me regarding this footage and my thoughts on advancing this quality for Combat Zone acquisition. It is episode #015 here: http://www.fxguide.com/redcentre
