LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU SEE FIRE - First Footage shot with the new Phantom Flex4K
Director Brendan Bellomo and I were asked by Vision Research and Abel CineTech to shoot the first test footage with the yet to be announced Phantom Flex4K Digital Cinema Camera. The camera was a little more than a week old and still in its Alpha Proto-type stage when we got our hands on it.
All the live action footage was shot on March 24th, 2013 with some additional fire elements shot on the 25th of March with the Hebron and Glastonbury Fire Depts. in Connecticut. We were thrilled with the camera's performance at this early stage of its development and are very much looking forward to this camera as it matures prior to it's release this fall. This is a true 4K RAW camera capable of at 1000fps at 4K resolution.Thanks to our great crew and to VRI and Abel for giving us the opportunity to shoot with this amazing new camera system.

The set of my first feature story for the November issue of National Geographic Magazine. We tracked the world's fastest runner, the Cheetah, with the world's fastest dolly shot ever done. Our high-speed camera system was capable of 70+ mph thanks to Doggicam System's enhanced Super Slider. Click here to see my interview on HD Video Pro.
