Red Sky Pictures recently provided DIT services for Eyewax TV’s production for Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival. With three Epic cameras, and six DSLRs, Red Sky had to provide an efficient workflow to manage terabytes worth of media throughout the day, as well as a way for pre-color-corrected files to be handed off for same-day editing. The workflow allowed a final product to be turned around just a few days after the wrap of the three-day, 36-hour music festival.
EDC is one of the largest electronic music festivals in the country, and showcases many of the world’s best DJ’s along-side awesome art displays and fun carnival rides. The experience really is like stepping into another world, but still fun nonetheless. Red Sky is excited to build even faster workflows for data management for these productions in the future.
Color Correction is one of the most important, yet oftentimes overlooked and under-budgeted aspect of filmmaking in the non-studio market. With today’s digital cameras, professional grade color correction will make a world of difference with any type of production. The quality of today’s high-end cameras – such as the Red Epic, Red One, or Arri Alexa to name a few – is astonishing and according to some, even surpasses film.

I’ll show some visual examples below first, then explain how the color grading process can help your specific project. Continue reading →
After months of working closely with the editorial team on season two of the hit dark-comedy show starring Elijah Wood, “Wilfred” finally airs its season premiere on Hulu Plus! The show will also be airing Thursday June 28, at 10PM on FX if you want to wait for its official TV launch.
Red Sky Pictures recently finished working with REP Interactive who produced Coldwell Banker’s “Previews International” commercial. Red Sky was hired as on-set DIT to provide production with digital dailies, assist with camera settings, create looks for the Director of Photography, and manage and backup all the footage. The production was filmed with the Red MX camera and as each card filled up throughout the day, Red Sky created multiple backups, color corrected each shot, converted them to files for the editors to begin working on later that night as well as iPad dailies.
Red Sky is proud to announce its involvement with season two of the hit FX show, “Wilfred,” starring Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings). RSP will be providing production with a workflow solution to generating transcoded dailies, prepping footage for multiple editorial teams, and uploading footage for the FX execs to watch after every shoot day. After showcasing the workflow Red Sky developed for Hulu’s “We Got Next,” “Wilfred” post team was extremely excited with working together to create an efficient, smooth post-production process. Red Sky is a big fan of the show and could not be more excited to team up with the production crew and FX to help bring Wilfred season 2 to your home TV!
