Thank you guys for these video, really very useful. Thanks a bunch.

The mattebox in this video is a VOCAS MB-450

wonder what camera was used to shoot this video

you guys should help out on StudentFilmmakers magazine website. there is a RED forum and a network of filmmakers!

What monitor mount are you using on the Panasonic 17" monitor? Is it custom?

What connects the monitor to the C-Stand?

thank you verymuch i know the technical matters from this video cilpings it is useful to my cinematography proffessional work.

Thank you for your info,i was searching for this for a while ....


Simply thank you, just stumbled upon this site, I'm hooked. Great video tutorial with efficiency and great camera work. Directed a shoot with Red last week and now I know wtf is on that thing. :)

I have to comment on the mounting of the follow focus...the first time the video shows the follow focus being mounted where the knob would be on the right side of the camera, that is INCORRECT...if you look closely that video image has been flopped....(look at the RED logo on the lens cap is backwards)...that type of follow focus can NOT be flipped from one side to the other...the gears wont swing in far enough if mounted with the knob facing the right can only me mounted correctly with the knob facing the left side of the camera. In order to have a knob on the opposite side of the camera, you must have an extra follow focus knob that slips into the assembly on the right side.

thank a lot but how can i get or download dis video guys. So i can go though its again till am use to pls help up out thanks.
