Peter Jackson's Short Film 'CROSSING THE LINE' Stills
4/23/07, 6:20 pm EST - Xoanon
Peter Jackson was offered to shoot 4K footage for RED to use at NAB 2007. What started out as a test session quickly turned into a movie. Peter and his team shot RED Alpha prototypes, "Boris" and "Natasha", for 2 days in New Zealand just two weeks before the opening of NAB. All footage was shot using RED's proprietary REDCODE RAW 4K codec and recorded to RED DRIVES. Click on the image above for 2 more cool pics! And cmon RED...lets put up the whole film for the fans!

Krabbe Kongcept Art
4/20/07, 1:12 pm EST - Xoanon
From wetanz.com: Designer Christian Pearce tells us about his 'Krabbe' creation for the King Kong film. Here's what Christian had to say about this creation in his usual dry humour: "Here is a concept for a Thompson sub-machine-gun. Obviously it made it into the film. Keener eyed viewers may notice a crab in the background." Check out the Kongcept Image Gallery for a larger pop up of Krabbe alongside other Kongcept artworks by the Design team. Check out our WetaNZ Forums to discuss King Kong online, too! [More]

What's this About Peter Jackson's New Short Film?
4/18/07, 9:48 pm EST - Xoanon
ran a story today about a new brand of high end cameras that were used by Peter Jackson
to make a short film. We wanted to verify the articles so we chatted with folks at WETA
/3foot6/Wingnut and this is what we received. RED (red.com) made contact with Peter and his team, they offered us the opportunity to field test the camera in New Zealand. Jim Jannard flew to NZ with members of the RED team with two prototype cameras. Peter shot a short film over 2 days, then it went to post production at Weta Digital and Park Road Post. The film is screening in the RED tent at NAB Las Vegas. The lucky folks at NAB got to see the 12 minute short...hope we get to as well! Click here for the article in question. [More
