APERTUS AXIOM

by: Alex Flemmings on

We want to talk about a movement we have been watching for quite some time now, namely Apertus Open Source Cinema. The goal of the Apertus project is to create a powerful, free (in terms of liberty) and open cinema camera that we as filmmakers love to use. The idea of using an Elphel camera for this particular purpose was born in 2006, found many followers over the years and ultimately resulted in this community driven project entitled "Apertus" (Latin for Free, Open) and this website, www.apertus.org.

Heres the latest post from APERTUS. 
Now there is no turning back anymore. Today we announced the product name of our new camera in the first of the Apertus talks in the Media, Radio, Television and Professional Graphics category at LSM. The future of open cinema cameras from now on has a name: APERTUS AXIOM

Axiom

  We have actually been rather careful and secretive not to release too much information about the new camera on the Internet as we do not want to follow the unfortunately quite commmon practice of how other companies announce their products: they just promise you whatever you want to hear and a couple of years later they admit that this product is not ever going to see the light of the day. So we made sure that what we announce is solid and well thought through. But still a word of precaution: We will need your help to create Axiom, only if we manage to succeed with our kickstarter campaign we will be able to afford the development. Currently we are still working on preparing the material for the campaign, unfortunately its taking longer than we hoped it would - Watch this video below and stay tuned.

The Wizard

The Wizard is at it again. Yes, Machete Kills aka Machete 2 seems to be a reality. The Rodriquez film is said to have a release date sometime next year (2013). As expected, this pioneer in digital filmmaking is seen shooting with the Alexa Digital Cinema camera.

Director Robert Rodriguez known for films such as - El mariachi (1992) - which made him the legend of independent, ultra-low budget filmmaking. His further career is a sign for young filmmakers that even the wildest dreams may come true if you are brave enough to follow your own path. Since then, Robert has written, directed, edited, and/or produced around 12 movies (as of 2007), including: Desperado(1995), From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), The Faculty (1998) and Spy Kids (2001).
