Shane Hurlbut on HDSLR's

Shane Hurlbut is a Director of Photography who has worked on many major motion pictures including "We Are Marshall" and the latest "Terminator" film. He was the first big-name DP to embrace the HDSLR as a serious filmmaking tool. In this two-part interview, he talks about his experiences with the 5D MkII and where he sees the future of HDSLR's going. The interviewer is a bit painful to watch as he seems to have no clue about some basic video technologies (including not knowing the difference between the RED Scarlet and Epic cameras), but the information is good for anyone working in this medium. Here is a link to the interview on the Cinema5D website. For more about Shane Hurlbut, ASC, visit his IMDB page here.
