Peter Jackson’s New Indie Short Film

April 24, 2007

Crossing the Line

Crossing the Line is a new short film directed by Peter Jackson. The short takes place during WWI and premiered last weekend at NAB (the National Association of Broadcasters). It was shot using a prototype of the brand new camera, Red.

Red is essentially a hybrid of traditional film and high definition cameras. The word is that it’s set to change the indie scene dramatically because of it’s ultra low price, $17,000, and its high quality output. Check out this video at to learn more about the camera.

It’s pretty unusual for a Hollywood director to release a short film, so Jackson must have been pretty impressed. In the near future Crossing the Line will be appearing in full on Red’s website, but for now you’ll have to watch this gorgeous 30 second excerpt (more download links here).
