    Just thought anyone reading this thread that has Red's on order might like to know we will be launching the South African chapter of the Digital Cinema Society very soon! We plan to take the industry by storm in promoting and educating the production, post houses, and cinema operators alike of the benifits of digital cinema particularly at 2K and 4K resolutions.

    So keep your eye out for news in the press soon!

    It's cool to hear that there are other Redheads in SA. I'm a Cape Town-based filmmaker with a Red One on order, should be getting mine in January. I will be shooting freelance and perhaps renting occasionally, but I'm keen to become involved in pushing 4k and digital cinema in SA. Just signed up at www.4khub.com. Is there any relation to Cape Town's HD Hub?

    Hi Caleb,

    Nope, no relation to HD Hub. We have a South African site up at 4khub.co.za also which will have a lot more SA local info on it. Glad to have you!

    I'll be sure to get more info to you on the S.A. Digital Cinema Society! I'd love to have you involved. I need to start getting some initial members organised so I'll definitely be in touch with you. Maybe PM me your cell number and I'll give you a call.

    Howzit Bruce, I too straddle the atlantic, spending most of my time in cape town but a few months each year in my hometown portland, or. Ideally I'd like to just follow the summer (and shooting season) back and forth.

    Rich, please just let me know what I can do to become involved in the Digital Cinema Society. I know lots of people here in Cape Town, many AFDA graduates, who might also be able to contribute something. I recently co-founded a production company (www.magichour.co.za) that specializes in HD but i work mostly as a freelance shooter, as well as the occasional editing and directing.

    Well, it looks like all three of us are in the same boat. I was born in Las Vegas, NV, grew up between San Diego, CA and Worthing, UK, and moved to S.A. six years ago where I met my wife, so now S.A. is home (South African women are the best by far, they even beat California girls... the Beach Boys obviously never came to S.A.).

    Yeah that's for sure! I lived in SoCal for four years and it's quite overrated IMO. Now I'm going on two and a half years with my SA girlfriend and there's no lookin back, she's beautiful and unpretentious. Anywho, it's great to see that you're building a digital cinema community in SA, and I'm going to encourage people I know to sign up and join in the discussion at www.hdhub.co.za, since there will be issues/limitations that will especially affect those working in 4k in this country (i.e. the misused digital projector problem).

    Yep, digital projection is only the start. The infrastructure here for local d-cinema may take years to catch up with the rest of the world. The post options here leave a lot to be desired for true d-cinema work, there's SD, HD (even uncompressed HD is hard to accomodate in S.A.) but 2K and 4K forget it!

    That's why we have plans on the table to open a dedicated 2K/4K d-cinema post facility here in Jo'burg. Real-time DI up to 4K, (although monitoring only at 2K), and two THX and Dolby Premier certified viewing theatres, each with 9m screens, one for DI (with 2K projection via Christie CP2000X and a Sony SXRD 4K projector with playout box) and the other for Pro Tools surround audio post (2K projection, also the Christie CP2000).

    By the way, I'd love it if we could get the forums going and more SA people involved. If you have people that want to be involved specifically in the DCS I am compiling a list of initial members to send to DCS back in the U.S. so maybe send me thier e-mail addresses.
