Show Open for the first ever Mixed Martial Arts event on network television, featuring Kimbo Slice, Gina Carano and many more. I did not edit this piece.
We shot 10 profiles and a show open over a period of three days in a warehouse in downtown LA. Everything was shot on the RED (this was before the Canon 5D hit the market) and all the rushes were color corrected in RedCine. In order to create a sustainable archive there was no time to color correct the finished pieces so no fine detail work, just a rough one-light and go! Still came out looking pretty good.
If I were to do this today I would choose to shoot it on my new 7D and 5D mkII with Hot Rod Camera PL mounts and set of Zeiss CP.2 lenses. Check out the new stuff here:
