Every once in a while on a film set, you only get one chance to get the shot. Maybe it’s a big pyro sequence that there is only budget enough to do once, or maybe a happy accident with the sun and an actor’s performance align perfectly and you could never hope to duplicate it.
Or maybe you’re strapping millions of communications gear onto a massive Falcon 9 rocket and shooting it into geosynchronous orbit.
If there was ever a situation where you can’t get a second take, this is it. And we’re proud that SpaceX has chosen BrainBox™ Cameras and our RED Epic cameras to record this amazing launch in 4K Glory. From a special “blast-proof” container that is right next to the launch pad the Epic camera will capture the Epic moments as v1.1 of the Falcon 9 slips these earthly bonds upon a pillar of fire. Awesome.
It all happens today, 11/25/13, at around 5pm EST, you can check out the live webcast here: http://www.spacex.com/webcast/
