Our Film Gear

At Red Nebula, we have a rich variety of production equipment to help achieve the perfect look for every video. Every tool used on a video shoot has its purpose, therefore we have a seemingly endless list.  Therefore, this page is dedicated to our favorites as well as most requested.  Give us a call for specific request, -we love making use of everything we have to offer.

RED 6K Dragon Cinema Camera

We love using the 6K RED DRAGON for the cinematic & ultra-sleek images it provides.  This is our favorite for ALL shoots.

 

Our RED DRAGON captures over 9x more pixels than HD, is unnrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. The industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology.

Movies shot on RED:

Guardians of the Galaxy vo.2

Transformers
The Hobbit
Stranger Things 2

& many, many more...
 

Steadicam

Some of the greatest movie scenes of all time were filmed using Steadicams. They allow moviemakers to produce moving, hand-held shots that are smooth & have no shakes or jolts.  Due to this, Steadicam is an invaluable, dynamic production tool in the film and video industry that unleashes endless creative possibilities. Steadicam will give your video immense  visual appeal with it's smooth, free-flowing motion.

 

We love using Steadicam for any production that involves movement.

 

  • In "Rocky" (1976), one of the first feature films to use Steadicams, operator Garrett Brown let the audience follow Sylvester Stallone as he ran up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum. This iconic shot would have been nearly impossible before the Steadicam.

  • In "The Shining" (1980), director Stanley Kubrick used a Steadicam shot to zip down the hallways of a haunted hotel and another to follow Jack Nicholson through a snowy hedge maze.

  • Then there's the mesmerizing "gala" scene in "Pride and Prejudice" (2005). In the scene, the camera takes the viewer around a fashionable ball, where Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth first meet. The Steadicam moves around the party focusing smoothly on various people.

Schneider Xenon/Sigma Cine FF Primes

The Xenon FF primes are a new family of lenses specially designed and built for digital cinematography with full-frame sensor HDSLR and other professional cameras to deliver high-end optics. Due to this, we use these cine-lenses to capture every detail of your project -that's how much we care about delivering high-quality productions.

 

You may wonder what other kind of lenses there are, and why this matters. Pay attention: Photography lenses are used as a cheaper alternative. The problem is that they drastically lower quality and do not produce the kind of visuals as do cine-lenses. Be sure to ask when you call for an estimate, and be sure to check the lenses on the day of your production. You would be surprised to learn that most 'professional' video & film companies actually use photography lenses as a cheaper alternative, yet charge you high-dollar for them. 
 

Sony PXW-FS7 XDCAM Super 35 Camera System

We love using the Sony's FS7!

 

This is a complete camera system that delivers long-form recording capabilities with 4K resolution that is designed for a range of long-form shooting and production applications. The Sony-F7 does an excellent job with documentaries, reality TV,  magazine shows, commercial shoots, corporate applications, & even cinematic productions. We have used the F7 for all of the above and it remains one of our favorites.

Drone/Aerial Cinematography

Jib

We specialize in low-altitude drone aerial cinematography to capture breathtaking aerial footage not possible in any other way.  These shots are perfect for Feature Films, TV Series, Commercials, Ad agencies & Industrial applications.

 

We’re FAA approved FAA commercial aircraft licenses and insured for film and television productions with  full time professionals.  

Cinema Jib

Brett is pictured here with one of his favorite toys -a Cinema Jib!
 

A Jib enables 'almost' limitless different camera affects and angles.  A Jib will add drama to product shots, get extreme high and low angle shots, create dynamic scene transitions, achieve artistic shots, and shoot smooth motion over obstacles (such as furniture).

 

Camera movement created with the jib adds perspective and viewer interest. Each camera angle can create a unique effect as well. For example, in the high angle, characters can seem small or weak, but from the low angle, shots create the opposite effect. The possibilities are truly endless.

The very best part of using a jib is that it adds high production value for little effort and at a reasonable cost. 

DJI Ronin-MX

Designed to resist high G-forces using powerful motors and IMUs, the Ronin-MX is engineered to maintain stability and hold horizon whenmounted to an aircraft or a vehicle. When mounted to the M600 aerial system, it communicates directly with DJI's flight controlle, allowing it to stabilize actively for a smoother shot.

Dana Dolly with pipe

Watch this video to see Brett using the Dana Dolly.  He has this larger version, plus one smaller version, to fit to your needs.  

The uses of the Dana Dolly are unlimited and the shots produced are stunning.  It adds production value to any commercial shoot and produces ultra smooth shots with extreme creative and cinematic appeal. 

There are also specific effects that can only be accomplished with the Dana Dolly that we are happy to discuss with you.

WE DON'T HIRE THE CREW, WE ARE THE CREW.
