Cinema 5D Interview With Lucasfilm's Mike Blanchard NAB 2010.

April 15th, 2010

Mike Blanchard from Lucasfilm is just as excited as we are about our little DSLR’s. He describes how the price and availability of the cameras and editing software has opened the door for anyone to make a good looking film. Mike has been using DSLR’s to shoot Lucasfilm’s “Red Tails”.  He makes the point to stay away from the numbers. It’s all about the final product. Canon should pay attention to the final part of the interview.

Hell yeah… makes me proud to be a DSLR filmmaker. 7d for the win.

PS. Its so true about what Mike says in this clip. I worked on a major feature in South Africa that shot on RED ONE and ARRI D21. I shot some pic ups on the 7D. And its insane how well the 7D cuts in with the Big boys. On a 40 foot cinema screen, it holds up there with the RED and ARRI. Truly mind blowing.

I have a 5D and a 7D and whenever I show the footage off on my 14ft projection screen people can’t believe how good it looks! Everything that he says is so true, I hope Canon jumps on this faster than they have been… Again I love these cameras!

This is the best thing I’ve seen on Cinema 5D. Great interview with solid information. Well done. If C5D continues in this direction this will be THE DSLR site to go to.

Not to be a nerd or anything, but this pretty much is the best DSLR site.

Its got the best forum but not the best NEWS and certainly not the best reviews. Great community though.

If you don’t mind me asking then what is the best DSLR news site?

And while we’re asking questions, what is (currently in your opinion) “THE DSLR site to go to?”

Just curious :)

Great interview. Canon really do need to listen. I guess they either put this chip in a proper video camera and sacrifice the Broadcast Division or sacrifice the Broadcast Division and continue improving the video capabilities of the DSLR’s. Either way I don’t think they had a clue what they were unleashing, apart from giving stills press guys the ability to send some video to Reuters for online, but one thing I know for sure is that it’s too late to close the gate and if they don’t do it somebody else will (probably Nikon because it has no broadcast division – it’s whether they can catch up). Either way the technology is here to stay.

We should all be bombarding Canon with Emails for firmware requests just like the 5D got 24p, People who own the 7D should let canon know that we want Audio control which they can do easily in a firmware upgrade and also push for a better compression format.

thanks for sharing ! so good to know that amateurs can actually share the same kind of gear and that talent is gonna determine who’s got it or not !

Cant wait to see how much RED ONES drop in value over the next few years. I’ll buy a Used RED ONE when it is under $5000.

Hopefully these enthusiastic comments will shut up the DSLR Discentors. The numbers don’t matter just get on with making the film.
