RED will also take attendees behind the scenes with two panels in Paramount’s Sherry Lansing Theater:
- June 2 at 12:45pm: Director Nicholas Schrunk and key members of Red Bull Media House’s production team will discuss the making of the feature documentary Blood Road. Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail. Their purpose was to reach the crash site and final resting place of Rusch’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos. Panelists will discuss the creative and technical process, and how this incredibly demanding story came together visually. Moderated by Andrew Fish of American Cinematographer.
- June 3 at 11:45am: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director of photography Henry Braham, BSC will talk about filmmakers’ escalating preference for shooting with larger format digital cameras. Braham shot Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 entirely on the RED WEAPON 8K VV. He will be joined by well-known producer, actor, and writer Dean Devlin. Devlin will discuss how new formats are driving an evolution in filmmaking for the big screen and touch on his experience using RED, including WEAPON 8K S35. Moderated by Carolyn Giardina of The Hollywood Reporter.

About RED Digital Cinema
RED Digital Cinema is a leading manufacturer of professional digital cameras and accessories. In 2006, RED began a revolution with the 4K RED ONE digital cinema camera. By 2008, RED released the DSMC (Digital Stills and Motion Camera) system that allowed the same camera to be used on features like the "The Hobbit” trilogy and “The Martian”, Emmy-winning shows like "House of Cards”, and magazine covers such as "Vogue" and "Harper's Bazaar”. The cameras of RED’s DSMC2 line — RED RAVEN, SCARLET-W, RED EPIC-W, and WEAPON — combine compact and lightweight design, superior image quality, incredible dynamic range, modularity, and cutting edge performance — including up to 8K resolution. In 2017, RED's newest 8K sensor, HELIUM, set the new image quality standard with the highest DxOMark score ever.
