(Los Angeles, California--August 1, 2011) JMR Electronics, Inc., a leading value provider of scalable storage solutions since 1982, has announced their sponsorship of RED Digital Cinema’s Camp RED, August 1st to the 20th, at RED Studios in Hollywood, CA.
During Camp RED’s three one-week sessions kids ages 9-15 will be learning production and post-production from top professionals in the film and video industries. Campers will have the opportunity to turn their own original ideas into scripts, make short films, television shows, commercials and music videos. The kids will work with the same gear used on such films as, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES in 3D, THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN in 3D, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and Peter Jackson's upcoming feature THE HOBBIT. At the end of each week, campers will present their work to their family and friends at the Camp RED Film Festival in the RED 4K theater.
“We’re thrilled to give the high resolution digital filmmakers of tomorrow a chance to use some of the most cutting edge tools available today,” stated Ted Schilowitz, RED Digital Cinema. “JMR’s SilverStor™ is part of that equation offering some of the most advanced data storage options for professional use. The kids at Camp RED will be taking full advantage of this opportunity.”
JMR will be providing four of their newest SilverStor™ 10-Bay solutions running Adobe® Creative Suite® 5.5 Production Premium which includes Adobe Premiere® Pro and Adobe After Effects®. Campers will utilize JMR’s latest media storage solutions to store, render and playback all footage that they shoot with RED One and Epic cameras. JMR’s BlueStor PCIe Extender will be powering the 4K projection of the campers finished projects in RED’s 4K theater.
“JMR is pleased to be a part of such a fun and educational experience for future filmmakers,” stated Mitchell Guzik, Chief Operating Officer, JMR Electronics. “JMR’s SilverStor™ combines high performance storage and PCIe expansion allowing users to maximize the potential of the powerful tools available.
