  #1 JUSTIFIED shot on EPIC 
    We are very proud to announce that " Justified " is shooting on Epics this season, by D.P Francis Kenny, ASC.

    From Francis:


    It's a joy coming to work each day. I am now on my third season of the television show Justified as the Director of Photography. FX.

    Justified won a Peabody Award and four Emmy nominations (winner supporting actress) for season two. We persuaded Sony Entertainment that by shooting with Epic Cameras production would be increased ten fold and it would look spectacular. Episode one of season three is now complete and our dreams have come true. The show looks better than ever and the producers are now true believers of the Red System. This was all due to the wisdom of a very brilliant man, who during the darkest days when it seemed impossible to convince the executives to see the light, quietly helped me find the words to persuade Sony to go Epic. Producers on the show are now saying, "I would never consider shooting with anything else except Epic. It is truly a miracle!" Thank you Michael Cioni, Jarred Land, Ted Schilowitz, Don Kurt (show runner), Michael Dinner (executive producer and director), Graham Yost (writer/executive producer of Justified who also wrote Band of Brothers and The Pacific), Kelly and Brent Carter, and especially Travis Sims who defined the term support. Robert Keslow is providing our gear.

    The same cameras were recently used on a pilot for BET I shot this summer in New York. We averaged 180 takes per day because of our ability to move these tiny cameras around quickly. All four cameras performed without a single problem.

    The key words that made the difference was the term "Selling Future Forward". 4K televisions will arrive within a year. Why would anyone want to shoot with a camera with less resolution?

    I thank you Red Team. I especially thank a very brilliant man who helped me find the words. A quiet humble man who I have the highest respect.

    Good news!

    And 180 a day sounds like incredibly fast rate of takes, that there in lies the value of a good investment.

    This is great! Ted was right when he said, these things sell themselves...stories like these will only perpetuate amongst other film makers as time goes on! These are very exciting times!
