Clip from Peter Jackson's "Crossing the Line"

Many independent filmmakers having been following the development of the new REDONE camera which is being built from scratch by a small team in Irvine California and is the brainchild of Jim Jannard, the founder of Oakley. Team RED had put out a call to filmmakers to test their prototype cameras and Peter Jackson answered the call. So they all got on board the Oakley Bombardier Business Jet and flew down to New Zealand for a weekend.

Much to their surprise, Peter Jackson had no intention of just shooting test charts. He had a script, a production team, costumes, actors, special effects, props, and two vintage WW1 bi-planes. And Peter Jackson proceeded to shoot a 12-minute World War 1 short in all sorts of conditions including trench warfare, complete with explosions, as well as an aerial dog fight.

Thirty seconds of that footage has been put Online. Remember, this was a "camera test". Here are a couple mirrors:
