PENTAX PRESENTS TWO SHORT FILMS SHOT EXCLUSIVELY WITH THE K-X

News update from the official Pentax website:

GOLDEN, CO (February 10, 2010)…PENTAX Imaging Company recently commissioned two Colorado production companies to create an entertaining short film to demonstrate the many possibilities of shooting HD video on a PENTAX K-7 digital SLR with a lens assortment that offers cinematographic perspective to anyone.

Posted on www.youtube.com/pentaxian1, the films were produced by All Terrain Studios and Futuristic Films both of Denver, Colorado.

The All Terrain Studios filmmaking team of Dave Rosner and Melissa Rosner produced THE RIDER in the Colorado high country at Loveland Ski Area and the nearby mountain village of Georgetown. Starring RIDE Snowboard sponsored athlete Erik Ludwig, the film shares a typical day in the life of a snow bum who lives for his daily terrain park fix. The film captures majestic vistas of the Rocky Mountain Continental Divide and offers an inside look into winter sport lifestyles. THE RIDER was primarily filmed with the smc PENTAX DA 15mm F4 ED AL LIMITED, the smc PENTAX DA Star 55mm F1.4 SDM and the smc PENTAX DA Star 300mm F4 ED(IF) SDM lenses.

Filmmaker Jamin Winans and Futuristic Films takes viewers on a wild ride in UNCLE JACK. Behind this nocturnal odyssey of a desperate fugitive is the sweet tale of an uncle comforting his beloved niece with a cellular bedtime story. A mad clown, a crazed woman, magic pills, gunshots and more add up for a fast-paced, riotous adventure. Shot in downtown Denver entirely at night, the film keeps you rooting for a troubled character with a big heart. UNCLE JACK was filmed with the smc PENTAX DA Star 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM, the smc PENTAX DA 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 ED (IF) Fish-Eye and the smc PENTAX DA Star 60-250mm F4 ED (IF) SDM lenses.

Stay tuned to www.youtube.com/pentaxian1 for future “behind the scenes interviews” with the filmmakers. Product information is available here: www.pentaximaging.com.

Uncle Jack is a real show stopper

It really outlines the benefits of DSLR Video.
And I was really not sure about DSLR vids in the beginning.
Let me link to another K-7 Video that I thought was stunning.
Fashion movie made with the Pentax K-7: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
there is a link in there.

unless it's an artifact of their post-processing, the body used to shoot "Uncle Jack" had some stuck pixels on the left hand side of the frame. I see two greenish "dots" in the same spot, in all the scenes, that stay put even as the camera moves. and no, they're not in my monitor

i noticed the spots as well. I guess Pentax did not. Regardless, Uncle Jack is great.

Indeed. These are K-7 videos.

Pentax need to commission some K-x videos too.

There are probably about 5 times more K-x video users out there than K-7 video folks.
