    The reason I am posting this url from YouTube is to demonstrate the firing of a Walker Colt (replica) in slow motion in darkened conditions using a Red Digital Cinema 4K camera. The firing is at about the 25 sec mark. Lots of flame.

    I served on this first episode of "Death and Compromise", which will be an upcoming cable indie Western series, filmed on location in Texas, as Property Master/Assistant Armorer. We used cap and ball replicas throughout the production: Walkers, 1851 Navys, Hawkens, Plains rifles, etc. in keeping with weapons used on the Texas frontier in the 1850s.

    That's a question that has not been answered yet, but definitely a cable network and not straight to dvd or vod, like the last feature length film I was in.

    The walker shot is a bit strange. Flames from barrel before cap ignition, and the hammer never appears to be cocked. :scrutiny:

    I noticed that, too. Embarrassing, honestly - and must be fixed now.

    Otherwise, the trailer is slick, the video is great, actors look interesting so the show might be great.

    That is odd. I was not on set when that particular shot was made. The Weapons Master was. I'll have to ask him or the editor if they added some movie magic ala Adobe After Effects, or perhaps somehow played the slo- mo shooting sequence in reverse.

    Elhombre, I agree that probably is an editing problem. While watching the remake of True Grit, in my opinion better than the original, when they were targeting shooting by throwing Chen Lee's "Corn dodgers' into the air, I was counting the shots by Jeff Bridges and counted around 8 shots from his SAA. That's great 8 shots out of a six shooter.

    However when watching it for the umpteenth time I noticed that he took 6 shots with his SAA but the other shots were taken with his '51 Navy he had in saddle. They must have edited out the very small part where he reached in to grab his '51 Navy off his saddle. You can tell it was his '51 Navy as you can see the loading lever under the barrel.

    I'm an editor, and i don't think you need to be one to understand that clip. The clip is simply just reversed. My guess is just for the trailer to make it more cinematic.

    Yep, thats it.

    BTW, we were actually able to beat AMC's production company for the western, "The Son", being filmed at the same time here to the punch in booking one of the only authentic rustic western town film sets in Texas. "The Son" wound up using another "western town", which was actually a rather pristine wedding venue built around a few old restored buildings.

    We also filmed at the old 1960s Alamo Village set.

    I missed my debut as a fx/stunt guy. I was to have been the only actor with scripted lines to be dispatched at close range after an argument in front of the saloon. I had worked up a co2 blood squib and was have taken a fall to the ground, but unfortunately fell ill the night before due to some bad tacos.
