Jeremy GarchowRe: Why 4k?

Well, no one ever believes me when I say this kind of stuff because they just don't know the market and because our budget doesn't have anywhere close to seven or eight or nine figures. I think that for some reason people think it's not legit and I don't know what I am talking about. I do not work in Hollywood, I do not work on their films, but some of the widescreen shows that we produce for corporate events are mind boggling and the technical requirements are getting more and more aggressive every year. The latest one that we helped out on was a final pixel count of 6480x1080. That is the pixel count of the screen that was being projected. I can't remember the final measured size, it was something nuts like 90 or 100 feet across. It was laid off to 4 HDCam tapes for a 4 tape sync roll. Now, this particular piece was mostly graphics so there was no shooting and we just helped with the inital cut before turning it over to design, BUT if we were to shoot 4K would be perfect for this type of situation and have been kind of in awe about actually being able to shoot on something that would hold up across these huge wide screens. For now we shoot in HD and get creative with design or push the limits of the projectors/switchers.

That's where I could use 4k. I do understand that it's not for everyone. I do understand it is in a league all of it's own. But ever since the technology has gotten cheap enough for a little ole dude like me to take advantage of it, I think I'd be silly to not take advantage of it. Also, I am an editor, but as an editor I need to know who's shooting and what they are shooting on, and it is my job to help pull off those humongous wide screen jobs and 4K would give me more options for creative decision making. I am not saying the workflow is easier or anything like that, but laying off a 4 tape sync roll isn't really a walk in the park and either is designing for it and shooting for it is even more limiting. If the red becomes a viable option for us, we could use it (or rent it) and I know I am not the only person in the world doing these kinds of shows. I know it's not sexy like shooting a motion picture with big stars, but it's my job and affordable 4K acquisition seems like something I could use.
