The moment I learnt about RED camera, I was about excited the new possibilities it promised in the world of cinema. Even promoted it to my friends, who might chip in to buy the camera. I am a aspiring film maker currently working in Bombay film industry as an assistant director. If any one of you have been to the city of Mumbai (Bombay) you would have noticed its flair for films. It produces the maximum no. of films in the world and it could buy tons of RED cameras! I wrote a blog on RED on a site, which is read by lot of film industry people:-
After reading quite a lot of threads and comments found answers to lot of my questions but one thing, which concerns me:-
.To make 35mm prints from REDraw code, one will have to do the color correction and then print it to make 35mm version. This process would be lot simpler than Digital itermediate step as it would ommit the stage of scanning the negative, but color correction and print would remain. So the main question is, how much would it cost to make a 35mm print after CC? Will it be comparatively lot lesser than conventional DI? I heard a talk about using Nitris, how much would it cost on Nitris? I wuld be very happy to get a 2k print at a resonable cost.
I would be happy to assist the RED team if they have an eye on a huge Indian market in every possible way!
