We shot a spot on Super Speeds a couple of weeks ago and it was like using my Contax's on Steroids - the 1.2 aperture is MIND BOGGELING. But that slightly analog look on an uncompromising digital brain like the RED is a pretty powerful combination, I completely agree. The RED by itself has no character - that's imprinted on the RAW data by the lenses you use, and of course the lighting and story you are shooting. But for visual "personality", I think glass has as a lot to with the character of the image, which is why I think Super Speeds are really interesting, as are lenses like Leica R's, that have a very distinct "look" I think.
Happy shooting. I like this piece a lot. And yeah...the flares in particular are pretty great. Great job.
