    Hey all! So I took some time away from reduser a while back, and have slowly becoming more active once again with group buys, and BTS looks at projects I have going on!! While I haven't been shooting on RED as much as I used to, I still want to be present here on the forums, because I love it here.

    For this thread, I want to focus on building a great BTS gallery of projects that not only I, but all of you have going on, so feel free to post or comment with your own breakdowns as well!!

    This series I'll be doing was for a recent short film I DP'd. We were going for very dark/moody during this "death" scene. All images straight off camera. Enjoy!

    Neat! I love breakdowns like this. Thanks for putting it together. Never seen a Hercules head used as a camera support before. How'd it do?

    Hey man! Thanks!! Will be doing a lot more of these!!

    The Hercules head doesn't have any counter-weight abilities, meaning, as soon as you tilt down or up...you'll feel resistance of it wanting to go back to level, but it worked well given the gear we had to get the job done!

    Recently, for Easter, I DP'd a film for a local production company in Dallas, TX. We didn't have many resources, but we got some great stuff I think!
