Jim Jannard (CEO of RED) weighs in on 48fps... Can't Post

Obviously he is biased because it his camera system.

However... something interesting to note is that he assumed PJ would use the 24fps function for The Hobbit and not the 48fps.

I find it rather encouraging. Smile

Here's a link to his comments:

Quote

When I 1st heard that PJ would shoot the Hobbit at 48fps... I was skeptical. To me, 24fps was "sometime". 48fps was "this morning".

I have to say that I am now a convert. The way this was shot (thank Andrew Lesnie), the VFX and Gollum... 48fps is "other worldly". In a good way. A way you have never experienced before.

Peter is much smarter than I thought. And I always thought he was pretty smart.

48fps on this movie is like nothing you have ever seen... magnificent.

Wipe your mind of preconceived notions. Forget "the will of the mass mind". This is just plain better.

There are so many reasons why to watch this movie...

It's really nice to know... [In reply to] Can't Post

... and I would like to see it, truly, to make up my own mind about it, if nothing else. I'm not put off by all the grumbles and gripes - it seems to me that if this weren't something very special they wouldn't have gone out on a limb to use it.

'Otherworldly'... 'like nothing you have ever seen'.... I'd love to see it.

Problem is, I can't. The US has a list of participating cinemas as long as both arms and a couple of legs. The UK has 4. Just 4. And there isn't one within reach of here. There isn't even one in London.

So please, Mr Jannard, don't tantalise us with speeches about how wonderful this is unless it's possible for us to share it!!!

I'm holding on to this card [In reply to] Can't Post

The great thing about 48fps for me is that i can see the film in 24fps first, and then if can watch it later in 48fps and it will be like a new experience again.

Again, i doubt that list is complete [In reply to] Can't Post

I bet you a fortune there will be a 48fps theater in London.

That's encouraging [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm definitely planning to see it sometime, but I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. But this is really encouraging. I'm really hoping to be fully immersed in the 3D 48fps. It has the potential to be really interesting.

Has there already been a thread asking which format people will see the movie in first? [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't want to start a new one if there already has been.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...

Jim also says : [In reply to] Can't Post

Be ready for a shock. Wipe your mind clean. It is unreal.

Jim

Is is unreal or is it like looking at the real world?Tongue

Another poster also said :

I was very ho-hum initially about the 48fps as well as the LOTR look in general, but TRAILER 3 has me singing a different tune.

hmmm...trailer 3

Until i hear a definite "no, with trailer 3 i don't mean the most recent trailer", i remain sceptical. [In reply to] Can't Post

It doesn't look like a new trailer is coming out this week. You gotta admit, it's getting rather late...

as you say, it is late.
But it it did happen, it would probably be just an internet trailer right?..

Why stop one month before the release? A good move would be a new trailer!

But we're so much closer now, and the list of theaters is now out, so people are probably planning it a little more. I'd go ahead and make a thread about it Smile

Just before I posted it, I realized it'd be more appropriate to go in the Pollantir.
