Joosbox has gone RED! The RED EPIC DRAGON has landed in Denver, Colorado. With the 6K RED DRAGON sensor, you can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology.



Your image is only as good as the color science behind it. The new RED DRAGON sensor features the most advanced color science yet, taking advantage of vastly improved dynamic range and low-light capabilities. Skin tones are softer, primary colors are more vibrant, and subtle color variations are discernibly remarkable. EPIC DRAGON cameras capture images that are true to life, with colors that can only be described as “brilliant”.


Resolution is more than just attention to detail. From large objects to granule textures, 6K images cultivate the nuance of every image, leaving nothing behind. Improvements to micro-contrast and MTF produce a cleaner image, drastically reducing moiré and aliasing artifacts. When outputting 6K files to 4K or HD, your image will appear more refined and detailed compared to those captured at lower resolutions. The choice is simple; Bigger is better.


The RED EPIC DRAGON clocks 300 frames per second. With blazing fast hi-speed capabilities, we can capture the fastest moments in ultra slow motion.


We are always at the threshold of technology and innovation. We set ourselves apart by implementing state of the art knowledge combined with our artistic style. With 4K resolution becoming the new standard we are ahead of the curve capturing all the way up to 6k. We know that 3D and motion graphics are in high demand and we work with the best designers. From script to screen we keep you up to date and informed. As a production company we do more than simply produce digital content. Our team, from a wide variety of backgrounds, will ensure that your project creates maximum impact.

Narratives to Commercials. Documentaries to Music Videos. Live Events to Corporate Videos. We use Digital Cinema Cameras including the RED Epic Dragon to obtain the highest definition quality and RAW dynamic range to set your project apart from the rest. We also get a alternative perspective for your project with drone aerial video production.

Our editing team brings visions to life and our cinematic color grading is backed by the power of Davinci Resolve.


As each job is different in its own right so is the crew that we bring on and we only work with the best in the industry.

Hi, I’m Shawn Astrom, the second oldest in a family of four. I grew up in Boulder Colorado. Seventy five percent of my time as a kid was spent playing video games and the piano, I wasn’t much interested in a lot more than that.

I was always messing around with computers and had a great love for art and music. At a pretty young age I started learning a program called Photoshop. Needless to say once I saw a little of what I could do with art on the computer the rest was history.

On top of that I discovered a program called Ableton Live and that led me to spend the next several years producing electronic music. With a bit of luck I had some minimal success with my music, even got to perform in Ibiza and Japan a few times.

Fast forward a bit and you’ll know that I had the pleasure of working at The Firm Graphics for several years as a lead graphic designer. I worked on several amazing projects for all kinds of clients in the electronic music scene.

I left The Firm Graphics in 2008 to go work for Citizen Pictures as their lead 3D artist. I had the opportunity to work for clients such as Food Network, Discovery Channel, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, and Activision Games to name a few. Citizen Pictures is currently producing some of Food Network’s top Shows.

In 2011 I started SA Studios, INC. I am currently working as a fulltime freelance 3D Motion Designer and VFX Specialist with a little bit of music production in the mix on occasion. We use a diverse set of tools ranging from Cinema 4D to Realflow to create pretty much anything you can imagine. We specializes in all things CG related from volumetrics to identity design. Thanks for taking the time to check us out.

Matt Ziniel

Freelancer - Cinematographer/Editor

I am a freelance cinematographer / editor based out of Denver, CO. I graduated in 2009 with a degree in Digital Cinema, and I have been working professionally in the field ever since. Currently I am freelancing for various companies, shooting nationally airing tv programming, feature length and web based documentary projects, and commercial work.

I am an extremely passionate and dedicated individual who thrives in a fast paced, unpredictable environment. I will always go above and beyond, to give clients what they are looking for and more. Whether filming big mountain skiing in Alaska, big game hunting in the backcountry, or covering the action sports scene in Colorado, I feel most in my element shooting people doing what they love in the beautiful outdoors. Characters, natural beauty, my family, and maybe the occasional beer keep me going, anything that keeps the heart pumping…

In 2011 I was nominated for a regional Emmy Award for my work as the Director of Photography and editor on the “My Hospital” ad campaign. Also in 2011, I was the Director of Photography for a nationally airing commercial for Mossy Oak. In 2012 a Telly Award for best online documentary was given to “Global Dance Festival – The Movie” where I was the lead videographer, and an essential part of the production team.
