“Underworld: Awakening” Shooting on RED Epic Cameras and Atom 3D Rigs
Underworld 4 will be shot on RED Epic cameras and Element Technica Atom 3D rigs.
Michael Cioni from Light Iron Digital posted this frame from a DI test they did with the Epics and the Element Technica Atom 3D rig:
“We could not be more pleased to be able to continue with UNDERWORLD 4 a relationship we began with RED more than 3 years ago when we purchased two RED Ones (serial numbers “N” and “T”) to shoot a picture called GAMER.
In the years since, we’ve used those two cameras on pretty much every show we’ve produced – we are just finishing-up the DI on LINCOLN LAWYER and it looks spectacular.
With the EPIC, RED has clearly elevated their game into the stratosphere – all the tapeless workflow efficiencies are still present but the image quality is now every bit as staggering as the rumors we’ve all heard. And being an S3D show, that we can put two EPICs on an Atom rig and hand-hold a shot, frees us to both practically and creatively shoot the picture exactly as we want.
I Know it’s been said before but, plain-and-simple, for both film-makers and ultimately the audience, the Epic is a game-changer.”
