This week DeSales TV/Film students were given a three-hour hands-on demonstration of a state of the art high-speed video camera capable of shooting in high definition and up to 6K (6,000 lines of resolution).

The Epic Red Dragon Camera, by Red Digital Media, is the type of camera was used to shoot the films Transformers: The Age of Extinction and The Hobbit.

Local freelance cinematographer Matt Hamm hosted a three-hour, hands-on session in the Shubert Theatre, and TV/Film majors were offered the opportunity to shoot scenes with Red’s flagship camera.

Wayne Turney, professor of theatre, then acted in a short film shot by the TV450 Cinematography class using the Epic Red Dragon. Recorded in one continuous five-minute shot, the students will enter the finished film in film festivals.

“DeSales University TV/Film students continue to experience and to use the latest technology right here in the Lehigh Valley,” said Chuck Gloman, director of the TV/Film program.
