You know that untitled Spider-man
project that's set to revitalize the franchise at some point in 2012? Yeah, that's being shot in 3D (not news) using 3ality
rigs and RED EPIC
cameras (superhotawesome news). Peter Jackson already scooped up 30 EPICs
to help him shoot his next big venture, The Hobbit
, in 3D, but he's been beaten to the digital cinematography punch by the producers of the next Spidey flick, who have cornered a quartet of the cameras and actually started shooting with them on set yesterday. John Schwartzman, the dude responsible for filming the whole thing, has been extolling the virtues of using such fancy gear over on the RED forums, which is also where he promises his crew will be making further comments detailing the user experience. In slightly less thrilling RED news, the Scarlet
S35 is being renamed to the EPIC Lite and will suffer the upheaval of having its features and price changed -- hit the links below for more.
