    Sean Hellfritsch and Isaiah Saxon who both apparently direct under the moniker Encylopedia Pictura.

    Got that from a blurb on Studio Daily here: (and there is an interview below that)

    I finally got to see the SI-2K up close at NAB, and I have to say - the touch screen interface is brilliant, easily the most intuitive I've seen on any digital cinema camera, the post-workflow with Cineform seems reasonably hassle free too. It makes beautiful pictures too, which is handy.

    I also really like that they've kept the camera modular. If they decide to come out with a s35mm-sized imager (which seems almost inevitable these days) you'll be able to slot it straight in.

    Yeah, the design is really cool. I just got my SI-2K (had just the Mini and a laptop before) and it is really well built and the work flow on set is really easy. The need for a DIT is almost non-existent, in my opinion, as it is so intuitive to use and records forever on a hard drive as opposed to CF cards or something.

    The first Project was a feature film called Blood: A Butcher's tale. It was shot on green screen and the backgrounds are done with CG based off miniature models. Here is a link to some behind the scenes: LINK. This was shot with the Mini to laptop. Stars Aaron Douglas.

    The second feature was called Thirst. IMDB LINK. It was shot in the desert under very dusty and harsh conditions. We had the laptop and gack on a C Stand, and just moved the camera and laptop around together most of the time. Hard shoot, but the Mini came through for us.

    The other projects have been music videos and corporate videos. Other projects coming up.

    Presently I am renting my NEW SI-2K (complete with camera body and EVF) to a feature being shot on Vancouver Island at Bay Film Studios. The full SI-2K is really well built, very reliable, and all you do is back up your hard drive at the end of the day. No CF cards. Record to internal or external hard drives. 4 hours straight recording on a 160 GB HD in 4:4:4 Cineform RAW, instantly editable off the drive. We are getting fantastic shallow DOF even at wider lenses. I'm hearing great feedback on the images, which is nice when you are renting the camera to them!

    Finally, I'm trying to finish up my own project - a green screen music video shoot that is utilizing miniature model plates and a tiny bit of CG.

    I'm having too much fun with this camera. Sorry for praising it so much. That wasn't your question. I've been meaning to write up a review on the new SI-2K, but I haven't had time yet. (I'm not super technical, so it would take me a bit of research and input from other colleagues to write something worthwhile).

    Cheers.
