Film Budgets | Red Camera Systems

Red Camera

The Red One camera system took the movie making world by storm upon its announcement in 2006 and the continued development of the products and accessories available to the filmmaking universe. Setting their sights on film with lower film budgets and the ability of young enthusiasts with a passion for storytelling to enter the production world founders Jim Jannard, creator of Oakley sunglasses fame and Ted Shilowitz (“the leader of the revolution”) were determined to bring down the cost of the digital film camera and to make them available to a wide segment of the movie industry.


In a very short period of time Red has gained credibility and been utilized in many productions to date and continues to enthrall users with its pristine image, ease of use and scalability.

In fact founder Jack Binder used the Red on a small European feature which came to film in Michigan with a tiny film budget as well as Pirates of the Carribean (4) On Stranger Tides with their enormous film budgets where they are using six Red cameras in a 3D application utilizing the Mysterium-X red camera. On “Pirates” Panavision has provided the cameras and outfitted them to use Panavision lenses.
