Skate – And The Wonderful Red One
Like expensive, limited-edition cars, the cinematic quality Red One digital movie camera required a $1000 deposit and a years waiting list to get one.
The results look incredible as this 120fps, dreamlike short of skateboarders (at what looks like the Trocadero in Paris) demonstrates. Although, to be fair, this is not just because of the camera.
Watching this (click through to watch the HD) shows how Vimeo is continuing to set itself apart from Youtube in terms of quality rather than quantity. Increasingly, Vimeo is to Youtube as Flickr is to Imageshack. Perhaps Yahoo should buy Vimeo to ram the comparison home and score a cred point against the Google monster?
