Just saw District 9 – and it is awesome. I strongly urge everyone here to go see it.
It was shot on the Red. Here is the info from Variety:
His team used as many as nine Red cameras -- owned personally by (Peter) Jackson -- and some Sony EX1 and EX3 cameras for secondary work. Opaloch was impressed with the Red's performance, especially with all the handheld work he had to do in windy and dusty conditions.
Still, Opaloch cautions against "getting caught up in the hype" surrounding Red and advises learning from others' experiences, especially when it comes to manipulating Red-captured content.
"I'm a film guy at heart," he says.
