Fade to Black on Jim Jannard

Jim Jannard announced today that he will step down as the face of RED Cinema. 

With the release of the Dragon sensor... I have finished my mission. I am done posting. I will no longer be the face of RED. Mercifully, Jarred will take my place and he is worthy times forever. Jarred is me... only 30 years younger.

My final thoughts...

I have done my best. I saw a fatal flaw in the camera industry. We did our best to address it.

I will now sink into the background, I hope with my reputation intact. I will work on the future of digital cinema... behind the scenes.

While I'm not a RED user, I have a lot of respect for what they've accomplished. RED helped push camera technology forward at a time that many companies thought otherwise. Excellent work Jim. Now take a well deserved break!
