[prMac.com] Minneapolis, Minnesota - CrumplePop today is pleased to announce Red Giant Carousel, a beautiful vintage camera film process that can be instantly applied to any Final Cut Pro X project. For creative editors who want to harness the emotive power of plastic cameras and 120 film, Carousel creates uniquely striking images that are useful in a wide variety of films. Carousel is the first product for Final Cut Pro X co-produced by CrumplePop in a new collaboration with Red Giant.
Carousel combines optical imperfections, vignettes, and color grades from a plastic camera to create a sophisticated effect that can be dropped onto any clip. Once applied, Carousel can be easily fine-tuned to create the perfect mix of film fade, light leaks, and color cross-processing.
"Working with the team at CrumplePop has been fantastic," said Aharon Rabinowitz, Red Giant's director of Communities. "As an artist, I've long admired their aesthetic, so when we decided to create something that really captured the feel of footage shot on a vintage camera, we knew we had to work with them. We're really proud of the end result of both our efforts."
"We're extremely excited to be teaming up with Red Giant," said Gabriel Cheifetz, co-founder of CrumplePop. "Working with Aharon Rabinowitz and Harry Frank has been a genuine pleasure - they have a big reputation in this industry, and their creativity and nimbleness says a lot about Red Giant as a company. We've got some truly extraordinary tools for filmmakers on the way, starting with Red Giant Carousel."
