Mike Blanchard from Lucasfilm is just as excited as we are about our little DSLR’s. He describes how the price and availability of the cameras and editing software has opened the door for anyone to make a good looking film. Mike has been using DSLR’s to shoot Lucasfilm’s “Red Tails”. He makes the point to stay away from the numbers. It’s all about the final product. Canon should pay attention to the final part of the interview.
Rick McCallum from Lucasfilm was nice enough to chat with Cinema 5D for a few minutes here at NAB 2010. Rick is really down with digital. He was one of the first Big Shots to use the DSLR’s for cinema work. His involvement with DSLR’s really put them on the map.
