ONSIGHT supports Red Dwarf's new mission

16th January, 2012

Red Dwarf is returning with their tenth series, Red Dwarf X, and ONSIGHT is delighted to have won the service contract for the full camera and post solution.

We are providing cameras and accessories, DIT hardware, multi-platform editing, VFX management plus post and mastering.

The RED Epic, with its 4K resolution, was selected using a mixture of ARRI Alura and Angenieux Optimo DP zoom lenses.  Shooting with a live studio audience at Shepperton, where our Camera Rental is conveniently based, the media is transferred and backed up there and then, making the rushes immediately accessible via the offline Avid system.

This classic program will feature the usual characters and original actors - Rimmer, Lister, Cat and Kryten, played by Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn.

The exciting 6-part series is expected to air in Autumn 2012.
