The Color Red Production Crew
“The Color Red” is an exploration of intersectionality and creating an open discourse on the existence of different dimensions of racism. This is a slice of life, intimate capture of two friends and their personal conflicts that arises during a global pandemic. The impetus of the film was sparked by real life current events - ie: COVID-19 pandemic, Black Lives Matter movement, miscegenation, anti-Asian sentiment, vandalism, etc. and the need to tell a unique story through our collective perspective. Our mission is to raise awareness & encourage dialogue on deep rooted racial issues and celebrate diversity and life.
Hopefully this captures the essence of the WHY we are creating this film.

FIRST ASSISTANT CAMERA
First Assistant Cameras have several responsibilities in relation to focus including maintaining camera equipment such as lenses, filters and matte boxes and properly assembling the camera for upcoming shots. As such, they often arrive on set or in the studio before much of the production team to ensure that the camera and all lenses required are prepared and ready before the day’s shoot is set to begin.
The First Assistant Camera will work with the Director of Photography to adjust camera specifications and tryout different lenses allowing them to look through the eyepiece to assess the shot. When the shooting day commences, First ACs are responsible for properly cleaning and packing away camera equipment in preparation for the following day. If problems arise with the rushes, such as scratched film or other related incidents, the First AC will liaise with the Film Lab to correct any problems with camera equipment or stock and ensure proper filming takes place.
