The most recent project I’ve been involved in that I thought you might find interesting because of the use of the ‘RED’ Camera system. My good friend Ben Bays has been working on this film “The Horseman” which takes place in 1790. It took nearly two years of planning and two weeks of shooting in Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, and Indiana. My part in the whole thing was pretty minor- I set up some castings for local extras and helped with a bit of organization and I gave him my input on first draft script last year- Ben then usually casts me as some bad-guy or extra in his films (2005’s Truck Driver), and this one was no exception. I ended up being in a fight at a tavern with the lead / hero. (can’t someone cast me in a nice, safe romantic comedy that doesn’t end up with me having bruises on my ribs at the end of the day? )
Anyway, I played my scenes with TV actor David Meunier, who has done lots of shows including CBS's Jericho, and others - he also been in "Pirates of the Caribbean" as a featured extra (see his page at IMDB in costume)
Yes, I held the RED camera- it’s HEAVY.
Anyway- the lead actors are David Meunier is an actor with lots of TV credits, he was on the CBS show ‘Jericho’ and had lots of walk on parts over the years, and Melinda Page Hamilton who has also done lots of TV including CSI and Desperate Housewives.
Ben has just released some stills from the shoot which wrapped last week. These are unprocessed frames directly from the RED camera.

Enjoy the stills – I’ll send more along if I get them-
