  • HEART – NIGHT AT SKY CHURCH 2011 REVIEW April 8, 2011

    “THE VISUAL QUALITY OF THE WIZARD RED CAM HD IS SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY”

    The visual quality of the Wizard Red Cam HD is superior in every way. Images are crystalline, and the resolution is pristine. A variety of camera angles and screen effects bring modern, high-end production edginess without sacrificing the direct focus of the music. Both PCM Stereo and DD 5.1 offer enhanced auditory caliber.

    MUSIC DVD REVIEW: HEART – NIGHT AT SKYE CHURCH

    There are those concert films that are very static. It is as though it were simply enough for a camera or two to be pointed at the band on the stage to capture the essence of the performance. Night at Sky Church is not one of those. The camera work here is in a word fantastic. There is constant movement, movement that echoes the excitement of the music and the excitement of the audience. The camera moves between long shots of the band to close ups of individual musicians. Camera angles change: they shoot from above, from below, from the side. They zoom in; they zoom out. There are split screens and super imposed shots. It is camera work that truly enhances the experience of the concert and the two men credited with the photographic direction, Champe Barton and Steve Gibby, deserve some love.

    CASE STUDY: A HYBRID 10-CAMERA RED 4K AND EFP HD PRODUCTION — JOURNEY: LIVE FROM MANILA *

    Production Team, Red Crew

    I was jazzed to learn about this production because of the show’s hybrid nature: 10 Red cameras on the rock band Journey in Manila in the Philippines. It may be the most exciting case study of this book, because it exemplifi es great craftsmanship executed with passion and a bit of risk-taking in order to ratchet the entire industry up a notch. A great big mash-up, the Journey/Manila show combined Red 4k with 720 p HD-SDI video, traditional video lenses with cine and SLR lenses, was directed for live IMAG and a feature-length edited concert, and employed crew members from around the world. And now, thanks to the team’s generous communication with me, this study can help to clear the way for future Red 4K-EFP hybrid productions to evolve.
