    Words from Jim:

    I have spent the past 45 years building “inventions wrapped in art”.

    Just now turning 70 and having a few health issues, it is now time for me to retire.

    I will be shutting down the HYDROGEN project, ending a career that has included Oakley, RED Digital Cinema and HYDROGEN. I am very proud to have worked with many great people over the years who have signed on to the vision.

    RED Digital Cinema will continue stronger than ever with Jarred, Tommy and Jamin at the controls. Komodo is about to be launched… and the HYDROGEN One will continue to be supported in the future.

    I want to thank everyone for the support I have felt over the years…


    Jim is one of the greatest visionaries of our time… and he has accomplished more than most leaders do in a lifetime. Over and Over again. He taught me everything I know, and as sad of a day as this initially may be, I am filled with joy that he finally is taking time to enjoy life.

    For RED CAMERA owners/users and fans, nothing changes over here. Jim will continue to smack me on the side of the head when I need it, and his ideas and direction will still flow into this company for years to come. We have prepared for this, and we are stronger than ever.

    Thanks Jim, for everything.

    Red and Hydrogen have both been a fun ride. Looking forward to the next adventure with Komodo.

    Sad, yet so well deserved. A man who has left a legacy for all, and especially for all of us whom use and love his creations. Enjoy Jim, you've earned it. Thank you.

    so if the hydrogen project is being shut down that means no H2 right?

    patiently waiting on Komodo this comes as shocking news but I hope he gets his health in order. onward and upward

    Thanks for a sharing Jarred. I grew up remembering Oakley being the elite status symbol of sunglasses and have been a proud Raven owner the last three years. Never got a chance to see one of those Hydrogen screens but it certainly has pushed that tech ahead. What a cool story - I plan to read up more on how he started his career but he certainly exemplified how one man can pursue his passions even in very different forms. People like that don’t come around everyday!
