Dear forum members,
I deeply respect forum rules and etiquette. I try to apply by them, with my best intentions.
Iíd therefor would like to clarify a few things and in the process, make sure I clear my name and hopefully resolve this matter. As Iím a responsible member of this community and fanatic spokesman for RED cameras out in the real world. I own 5 Epicís and 2 RED ONEís and love every ounce of these cameras.
My thread about a complete camera accessory solution we call TITAN Lite was deleted without warning. I do understand that when advertising products. Youíre supposed to be a sponsor for this forum.
I want to voice that I did go through the channels, asking for sponsorship, several times, to no reply. I also want to say that this is also regarding a product that doesnít even exist yet. We were not actually selling it. Or trying, for that matter, to take any orders yet. We havenít even announced any prices. We were simply showing something that weíve designed., firstly for ourselves. Then at later state. We realized that this is probably to good to keep for ourselves. That we should maybe share that design. As itís actually a quite clever solutions. Or in a lot of ways, very clever. Thatís when we went on reduser.
Now according to forum rules does this make me a spammer? Well Iíve been a member, since day one, on this forum. Iíve tried to contribute, as responsibly as I can. I did approach administrators/ moderators about sponsorship. When asked by moderators if I had started to apply for sponsorship. I immediately replied them back. Letting them know that I had. I also asked for useful information in how to go about with this. I was in no way trying to avoid or hide from this. Iíve never even got to speak to the right contact about sponsorship. As my requests where never ever replied to? All of them? The thread was just shut down, without any form of contact, what so ever. No resolving conversation. No explanation?
Am I just the average Joe suddenly appearing on this forum, trying to make a quick buck? No Iím a well known member in this community. Award winning, both as a DOP and as a Director. Working on a global scale. I own 3 Production Companies, 1 service company and a small camera rental. I have a name and reputation to think of and is definitely not a scam artist. As Iíve already said. We were not even trying to start any orders. As the product doesnít physically exist yet. We made it specifically clear. That if we were to take orders. It was only when we were actually ready for it.
So Iím writing this to make sure that itís crystal clear that I had all intentions in doing things the right way. That we and our products are in everyway legit. That weíre willing and have tried to go about this in the right way. That I would love to be able to share our camera solutions with fellow redusers if allowed, as we havenít just designed some junk from the scrap yard. I think that what weíve so far shown. Clearly indicates, that this is very cleverly designed, high end equipment, for the Pro user.
In saying so... I respect that, for whatever reason, I will not be allowed to share our designs on this forum. Although itís supposedly, to my knowledge, an independly run forum. Iím sad that we havenít been given the chance to show more of our solutions and would very much want to do so, if given the chance. Although, I guess we should be glad that we didnít get to announce more. As we probably would have revealed to much of our solutions, which would have been... well not very clever. If weíre not able to be a part of this community.
What I donít appreciate is the silence. No contact or effort has been made at all. Just silence, but I guess that in this case.... maybe - silence speaks louder than words :)
Iíd also like to say. That before this matter is resolved. Hopefully it will be. For the users that followed and are interested. Youíre more than welcome to PM, or email me, for further updates and information about our rig.
