ARRI is a company that makes movie cameras, lighting, etc. They're pretty much the standard in the feature film world. They're like BCM/KAC is to the gun industry.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when the feds don't raid a gun manufacturer. I'm interested as I am in the business myself.

Of course, the link is to REDuser, a forum for fans of the RED cameras, a direct competitor of ARRI.

There is a lot of parallel behavior between their forum and this one.

My film buddies masturbate furiously to the RED camera. This will be interesting I think.

My bets are as follows:

1. Some sort of fiscal/tax impropriety that comes under federal law.

2. Something in the Arri product comes under U.S. State Department controls for export of technology/munitions and they did not dot all the "i's" and cross all the "t's". (Like now NVD's, certain software, even video cards an American can buy cash-n-carry still can't be exported without State Dept. approval etc...)

Uh, oh...

Michael Bravin is the ARRI PR guy on that forum, so I'll be waiting for when he posts.

While in front of the lens –– or behind it?

Think this will have any affect on Alexa?

Here's Jim Jannard's thread on the issue:

And I just realized IBC is this weekend, so the Feds couldn't have picked a worse time for a raid.

No idea.

Yeah, the timing sucks. I'm convinced the feds do that shit on purpose "just because".

I was all excited about the Scarlet TWO YEARS AGO.

The endless announcements that announce announcements and the tiered release are just pissing me off.

Yeah, it's a great camera, but jesus already. Enough with the hype, just give me the damn thing. I realize it's the Oakley guy who runs the company, and he knows marketing, but enough is enough.

Arri news: Unauthorized computer access at Arri Burbank. Arri is not the target of the investigation.


For fun...


And just to be fair:
