So, not to sure how many of you watched the recent series of Life on the Discovery Channel, I for one am a big sucker for that kind of programming. Although I fully enjoyed the breath taking cinematography and was left with several "how the hell did they do that" moments, I found myself wondering how much this kind of subject matter will benefit by embracing RED, EPIC and for that matter Scarlet technology.
Nothing against what the Disc. Channel accomplished, it was awe inspiring, but I couldn't help but wonder what a curtain shot may have looked like if it had been shot on RED.
On one of the episodes I saw footage that could have come straight from one of Tom's Timescape reels, but it seemed to lack the depth and clarity Tom has captured with his RED footage. If the is better subject matter that could benefit from the tools Jim and his team has created, I would like to see it ....So I am left thinking what the limitations of using RED TECH in capturing Wildlife and Nature footage? are there any? and what direction can Life go... ..after Life ?
