Why a Red Scarlet-w?

Why a Red Scarletw?   Over 4 years ago I wrote a blog about why we were purchasing a Scarlet-x digital cinema camera. A MASSIVE step up in performance and cost from our then current Canon 5D Mark ii. Well four and a half years since the purchase that camera is still our workhorse. 4k 24/25 fps and 3k 48 fps.

Ocean & Earth TV Commercial

On what was undeniably a very challenging shoot we found ourselves contending with heat, dust, glaring sunlight, strong winds and filming around learners operating heavy machinery for this TVC (Scary!...

A couple months back we we're asked to shoot an instrumental studio music video clip for a track written by Oumi Kapila and Anthony Cormican. We didn't edit it, that amazing work was done by the multitalented Chris Reeve (drums). It was a fun opportunity for us to think on our feet for a few hours (we didn't plan anything) and shoot some awesome musicianship down the road from us in Perth. Shane and I shot it with Zeiss primes 28, 50 and 100, the Cinevate Atlas 30 slider [...]
