Rent Ghostlight’s brand-new forged carbon fiber Red Weapon at 1/4 the rate of camera rental houses! It’s the sequel to the camera used to shoot The Martian, Jurassic World, The Hobbit Trilogy, the Avatar sequels, and more!
Lighter weight. Instant edit-ready ProRes & Avid files. Improved low-light. Higher data rates. Eliminated fan noise. Cable-free 7″ 1080 touchscreen. Stunning 6K resolution, over 200fps slow-motion, and unmatched 16+ stops of dynamic range. It’s Red’s best camera yet!
For this ejection seat explosion, we used fluid simulation to create computer-generated smoke and fire. Normally we try to use actual explosion footage, but this required very specific timing, shape choreography, as well as high interaction with the moving van. The final simulation took 8 hours to calculate, and each frame took 2 hours to render.
James, the Director of Photography, shot on anamorphic lenses and graded in 4K, making this our first project finished in Ultra-High Definition. Ghostlight also removed Adam’s front tooth using Visual Effects, which involved animating and replacing his tongue and lower teeth. Produced by Brian Dillingham. Makeup by Salette Corpuz. Music by Alfred Montejano. Thanks everybody!
See more stuff we did with Adam Ray!

We got to work on STAR WARS, our all-time favorite movie series! Having previously shot all the behind-the-scenes for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, we were invited to a galaxy far far away for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.
Highlights include: boarding the Millennium Falcon (and crying), filming Han’s famous “Chewy, we’re home” line (and crying), reuniting with Trek and Bad Robot buddies, meeting new talented folks, and witnessing cinema history. It was truly the most amazing experience of our lives, so we did our best to capture it for our fellow fans. Thank you to everyone involved!
