If any of you have been following me on twitter, you'll know that I've been traveling back and forth between the US and Panama with a lot of RED's. What we're shooting down here is a multicam rig setup to later project onto 10 different screens. Center, Left, Right, Sky and Ground, the theatre in the BIOMUSEO will literally put you into the environment we are filming now.
The BIOMUSEO is a new museum opening up in Panama City, designed by the legendary Frank Gehry.
Our first adventure down to Panama, we only had the 3 epics, and did some step-and-repeating to get both the sky and ground shots. Now, since April 1st, and until the 15th, we will be on our second and third week with 3 epic's, and 2 scarlets. The rig is a mixture of Zacuto and Berkley rods, on a lot of custom Losmandy plates and quick releases.
We've been everywhere and more so far, from up in a construction crane in the middle of the jungle, to the highest point in Panama on top of Volcan Baru. Down rivers in dugouts with the 72lb+ rig on the front, it's been pretty crazy!
Here are some pictures of our latest trip, with hundred more coming to my facebook and twitter when I get the chance.
EPIC 5k Framegrabs (I pushed in a bit in post for the director who wanted to upload some and wanted a closeup.
Sometimes things get messy when you have little space and need to update firmware and black calibrate!
I've got many more pictures, just needed a place to start talking about them!
