I'm new to the Epic community and am shooting a commercial package beginning in June. This will be the sixth year we've done this package of spots, years 1 and 2, 35MM film, then Sony F23, Sony F35 and last year Alexa (SXS Cards). This year I'd like to use the Epic at 4K (or 5K), the producer is leaning towards going back to Alexa. I should also mention that a portion of the package is for theatrical release as well as broadcast.
My question to all the Red veterans out there is, what are the most important "talking points" when having this discussion with a producer? I have a basic understanding of resolution, raw vs pro res, and workflow. I also know that ease of workflow is very important to this producer.
I'm certain that there must be many of you on the Red User Forum who have had this discussion in the past and can pass along some words of wisdom.
Thanks in advance to any help you can offer.
