Onyx Cinema Unboxing RED SCARLET-X

Our RED representative called us saying that our SCARLET-X was ready for pick up. We were so excited, we brought the kids and an HMC150 with us to film the unboxing at RED in Irvine.

As the employees were walking into the lobby to go home for the day, we were greeted with smiles and congratulations. It was a great feeling.

Thanks to the folks at RED!

back 2 back on the battlefield

Our very own Anthony Vu and Charlice Lin capture the events of a car crash recreation as it happens.  This was on the “set” of La Mirada’s “Every 15 Minutes” shoot.

I smile every time I see this photo.  Especially Anthony’s hardcore concentrating stare instead of his usually endless smiling.
