Alien Prequel To Be Filmed On Red Epic 3D Cameras

Add the Alien Prequel to the grand list of upcoming projects to use Red Epic cameras, somewhere below The Hobbit and Marc Webb’s Spider-Man. Here’s a quote from Dariusz Wolski, the film’s cinematographer, as provided by Red’s head honcho, Jim Jannard:

In my opinion, the new Red Epic camera is about to revolutionize all spectrums of the film industry.  I am going to use Epics in my new project directed by Ridley Scott. I am amazed with the quality of the image and the fact that you can shoot 5k at 120fps without compromising resolution, and most of all the size of the camera.

Combined with the Element Technica Atom 3d rig, we will be able to shoot a 3d movie with the flexibility of a conventional cinema camera. I don’t see anything that comes close to it at the moment. I can’t even imagine the potential Epic will have on the big blockbuster industry as well as independent cinema.

You may consider it more interesting that Scott has tapped Wolski to shoot his film than which camera system they intend to use. Either way, though, this is good news, I think we can agree.

Wolski has recently been filming his first native 3D production, the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film; previously, he was the cinematographer for Tim Burton’s post-converted Alice in Wonderland. Good to know Scott has somebody with some stereo experience in the bag. Could help with some ambitious stuff.
