the orphanage closing its doors…

orph_logo_600

Very sad post from Stu Maschwitz over at ProLost.  His company, The Orphanage, is closing its doors indefinitely. Most recently, Stu and The Orphanage produced Frank Miller’s The Spirit, 300, and Sin City. Along with Shane Ross over at Little Frog in High Def, Stu’s ProLost blog has been a huge influence on my blog game, inspiring me to attempt to walk in his footsteps and share production knowledge for the sake of bettering our community and the industry.

Here’s a short, classy excerpt from Stu’s post:

It’s no accident that our company’s name described a place for people, people who may be thrown together, but who ultimately create their own destinies. Scott once described his vision of an orphanage as “a hundred success stories waiting to happen,” and that is exactly what came to pass inside our offices. We have had the privilege of working with many “Orphans” over the years, and watching them grow and take on new responsibilities has been the single greatest part of coming to work every day.

A message to the visual effects industry: You will never find a better employee than a former Orphan.

Good luck to you, Mr. Maschwitz, and to all the Orphans out there.

redrelay – awesome red footage resource

redrelay1

Just found RedRelay while reading Stu Maschwitz’ latest ProLost post talking about the subway short trend. RedRelay looks to be a great resource for getting your hands on RED footage to cut & grade.

All the comprehensive info describing how each clip was shot makes this site a great learning resource as well. You can download RED footage, iPhone versions of the clips, tiffs, and even follow a hotlink to the related reduser thread. Awesome.

Now go download some RED footage and put that Color 1.0.3 update to use.

**UPDATE**

To do that grading in Color, you will of course need to get the RED FCS2 Installer…

…and the RED Quicktime Codec.

Oliver Peters posts to the FCP-L:

The new RED FCS2 Installer at red.com/support includes a workflow white paper. This new installer adds some native functionality when working with .R3D files in FCP and Color. You must have done the most recent ProApps update before installing the new RED components. Even if you don’t actually run the RED installer, it’s worthwhile to download the archive file and review this PDF white paper.

And here’s a sneak peek of the white paper for your enjoyment:
