Simple, your footage needs to be captured/digitized into a computer like Final Cut Pro. Once it is captured, it will be in MOV format. You do need to discuss with the Director and Editor as to what compression format, frame size, they would like when the footage is digitized. That will depend on what format the Editor will use in his editing.

Everyone needs to be involved in discussion, especially when different shooters, editors and cameras are used.

I'm not a Red expert, but that camera records to either a hard drive or solid-state media, not tape, so no videotape deck is needed. You need some way to get those files (wavelet codec) into an editing system to convert to MOV files.

I,ll be using my HDX900... he has been using the RED previously .. so he,ll need a deck to digitise when he gets back to his edit.
