Brain Farm Digital Cinema Shares First Footage Captured with Cineflex ELITE at NAB
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
Farm Digital Cinema (Brain Farm), a
premier turn-key production house that captures and produces
high-end film, TV, digital and commercial content, worked with the
General Dynamics (News - Alert) Global Imaging Technologies engineering team to develop
the new Cineflex ELITE. Brain Farm is also the first to use the
state-of-the-art digital cinema system that will further push the
boundaries of digital cinematography beyond broadcast HD. Brain Farm,
which is well known for their aerial and ground based stabilized
cinematography, will showcase the Cineflex ELITE's unique capabilities
by displaying footage shot with the new system at this year's NAB Show
in Las Vegas.
Brain Farm's founder and CEO Curt Morgan consulted on the development of
the Cineflex ELITE, to build on the success of Cineflex V-14, which
Brain Farm used to capture unique, sharp ultra HD shots for projects as
diverse as their acclaimed snowboarding documentary The Art of FLIGHT and
commercial shoots for companies including Subaru and Visa Blackcard.
The Cineflex ELITE is intended to become the industry standard for the
most demanding directors, producers and DPs.
"We are proud to have been a part of the creation of the Cineflex ELITE
as the new system will take digital cinematography to the next level.
This new system will inevitably be a major game changer in the world of
digital cinema prodution," said Morgan. "We are currently testing the
boundaries of use on various projects from mounting and controlling the
system wirelessly on everything from a jet ski to an unmanned helicopter
and we are extremely excited for its release to market."
Key features and advancements in the new Cineflex ELITE system include:
Ultra compactness and ease of use
Ability to work in a broad range of light conditions
Upgraded to the Arri Alexa M Camera System
Integrated PL Canon (News - Alert) FK30-300mm telephoto cine zoom lens and
FK14.5-60mm wide-angle cine zoom lens
Modular design for future upgrades and integrations
Wireless control option
Fully-integrated filter set
Brain Farm is planning on having multiple in-house systems for
supporting use in their media properties as well as providing the
industry a turn-key aerial service.
The Cineflex ELITE and footage captured with the Cineflex ELITE will be
showcased at Cineflex booth # C12719 in Central Hall.
This announcement comes on the heels of Brain Farm's recent work with
SnapRoll Media and Schiebel, to successfully fly the first rotary UAS
(Unmanned Air System) ever featuring a Cineflex® camera system mounted
on the CAMCOPTER® S-100, which will also be introduced at this year's
NAB Show (Broadcast Microwave Services, Inc. booth #C9545, Central Hall).
