Article on Red from Wired

From August.  In the comments, some people point out some of the errors in the article, but nonetheless a good article.  The article talks about the development of the Red One, about Peter Jackson shooting Crossing the Line and Steven Soderbergh shooting his Che Guevara biopics with Red One prototypes, and shows some footage shot on the camera.  For fun, see if you can find the errors without peeking.  And I know, I know, if you don’t have a good story- it doesn’t matter what camera you are shooting on.

Hollywood Talent Agencies Moving Away from Ownership Model: video

from Vator.tv, a tech company social network

  • ‘The agencies, such as United Talent Agency and William Morris, are becoming more like venture capitalists as they move toward an ownership model and further away from the representation model, said Chris Pappas, head of digital media practice for United Talent Agency. “We find the right artist (and) we create a company around his/her intellectual property,” he said. As for the artist, “they’ll have a substantial ownership position,” he added. “The idea is that they’ll be the owner of that content and not just workers for hire.”‘
