Smashing Pumpkins - Smashing Pumpkins Pioneer New Technology In Video

Rockers the Smashing Pumpkins are set to make music video history by becoming the first act to shoot a promo featuring state-of-the-art Red Epic M cameras.
The group has teamed up with director Robby Starbuck for the short film to accompany new single Owata.
The video, featuring wrestlers Shelly Martinez, Cheerleader Melissa and Raven, will be shot using cutting edge film technology which is currently being used by Hollywood visionaries James Cameron for the Avatar sequel and Peter Jackson for The Hobbit.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan says, "I'm really excited that we are coming at this aggressively with the newest technology that's out there. With the concept we have at hand, which is based on brutal Japanese style of women's wrestling, we'll need to get super clear close-ups to tell the story properly."
Starbuck tells WENN, "To be on the forefront of the advancing technology in digital cinema is very special to me. These hand-crafted Red Epic-M cameras are unbelievable in what they can do and we're beyond excited to play with the camera and give the world one of its first chances to see what this camera can do.
"We cannot wait for this video to be done so we can let the extraordinary images speak for themselves. It's an amazing change in film when Peter Jackson, James Cameron and I are in the same sentence when it comes to available technology we're all using."
