Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” Shot on RED EPIC MONOCHROME

I was recently stunned when I heard RED was making the Monochrome camera which only shot black and white…what the hell??  But after watching Justin Timberlake’s music video “Suit & Tie” music which was shot on the RED Epic Monochrome camera I can understand why.  Most people would think why not shoot it all in colour get the right look and grade it out later, well you could do that or you could just use the Monochrome as it is specifically built for black and white cinematography according to RED themselves, the camera is ” a dedicated B&W camera that takes advantage of greater light sensitivity and tonal transfer in gradients, far exceeding the monochromatic quality of a desaturated color image.”

Enough said I guess…watch the above video it’s banging…

The music video was shot by Director David Fincher and has a very 1950s las vegas show cinematic feel to it.

Until next time…

Keep shooting!
