Video Europe were proud to supply The Edge Picture Company with one of our RED Epic Dragon’s, Cooke S4i Lenses, WCU-4, Movi M15 and Head Technician, Scott Wright, while they made the film, The Essence of Qatar.
The demanding shoot took over 5 weeks to complete, taking the crew all over Qatar with multiple locations every shoot day. The RED Epic Dragon performed wonderfully in the heat and survived the toughest of desert locations, Scott was extremely impressed “RED has somewhat an unreliable reputation, but the way this camera performed on this shoot was unbelievable, RED really have done wonders with their latest firmware updates, the day’s of waiting for RED’s to fail on set are well and truly over!”
The film has recently won a GOLD award in the event venue category at the New York Festivals this week. The competition honours films from 50 countries around the world and competition is tough! So many congratulations!
