Looking Ahead To Twenty Eleven. Thank You All So Much!


I was looking through all of the photos of 2010 for a possible retrospective. In the process I found this little video of our dear friend Robin Schmidt. He swung out to Hollywood for the Photo Cine Expo. He pretty much sums up the entire year in this video. We have had such a blast reporting for Cinema5D and also building up our new playground Wide Open Camera.

Looking forward, we will be heading down to CES with DSLR News Shooter Dan Chung, we have a documentary shoot in San Antonio, NAB 2011 and a huge tour planned in May with Sandy Puc’. I expect we will get all of the new toys by NAB 2011. Until then I will make due with the gear I have. If I have learned anything this past year it’s, patience.

We are also very committed to two very special projects. The first is our commitment to build a well with Charity: Water. The second is a project to get digital cameras in the hands of underprivileged kids. I will post more about this one soon.

We now have a vibrant community of supportive filmmakers all connected throughout the world. We also have great venues such as Vimeo and You Tube to display our work effectively. This truly is a revolution in the making. I think the HDSLR community will be seen as the foundation of the next generation of filmmakers.

In no way shape or form could I have done any of this without my main man Chris Collins. He is the man behind the scenes ALL of the time. San Francisco hipster Chris Marino has been a great contributer as well. There is no way to thank everyone individually. Your support has given me unprecedented access to the inside world of the business. I cannot thank you enough.

Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood, California. After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography. About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
