The first RED EPIC camera to be released has been stolen in what appears to be a general burglary from a chalet in Meribel, France. EPIC camera number 0006, owned by Mark Pederson, CTO of Offhollywood studios, was stolen while he and his family slept, their front door having been forced open. Also stolen was cash and an Angenieux Optimo 15-40mm (s/n1591382) lens.
Jim Jannard, founder of RED, has offered a $100,000 reward for:
“The safe return of EPIC #00006 and the rest of the system including the media with Mark’s files… and the arrest and conviction of those that broke into Mark’s chalet in France.”
