Guillaume, you are so right, if you want to bring you camera to LA, which I think is in Orange actually, by all means you should be able to. Why not do a casting and shoot a short while you are in LA? Actors can use some work or reel material. It also would be good for you and your camera. If I'm in town, I'll take you to a few enjoyable night spots. Hit me up.
I would like someone from RED to allows us to bring out camera's in person, saves us all money and less pollution. You know, make the world a better place? For the earth, shipping wise at least.
