Digital Film Triumphs

At a time when digital shooting offers lower cost and greater artistic control, it’s fascinating to watch our most acclaimed filmmakers hasten the demise of actual film.

What do Fair Game, The Social Network, Jackass 3D and the upcoming drama Rabbit Hole have in common? All of them were shot with the RED ONE digital camera, a game-changing device that’s revolutionizing the way films are made. The RED is the first digital cinema camera to achieve 4k resolution, twice as good as high-definition and on par with 35-mm film, the traditional gold standard in image-making. The RED isn’t the only one of its kind but its 4.5 kilogram size, reasonable cost and high resolution have made it a favourite toy of contemporary filmmakers.
