*Cinematographer speaking to rental house* "What do you mean you're all out of ARRI ALEXAs?! All you have left are RED cameras!?!?"
In a hilarious new parody video (by YouTube user Kinda Forgetful Videos) that has been making the rounds in the filmmaking community — and what appears to a re-subtitled version of an incredibly strange Spanish talk show — a cinematographer had exactly that dilemma, finding out that RED is his only option for an upcoming shoot. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.
Even though some are sure to find this video distinctly unfunny because they're avid users or fans of RED cameras, it's important to remember that our technology and our tools don't define us. There's no doubt that pretty much every camera coming out these days is capable of producing incredible images in the right hands, and REDs are no exception. Still though, it's just a whole lot of fun to lampoon RED every now and again.
