Here are producer Noah Harlan‘s year-end thoughts:

I think a lot of people missed Jake Mahaffy’s Wellness (pictured) which won SXSW this year and got a Gotham nomination. Also, I continue to be amazed by what is coming out of Israel. Each year I think that they have peaked and then they produce even more impressive films the next. With films like Beaufort, Jellyfish, The Band’s Visit and Waltz With Bashir they have had an exceptional year with awards (Academy Award nomination, Silver Bear at Berlin, Camera D’Or at Cannes…). Lastly, I think the introduction of the RED Scarlet system on the technical front is remarkable. It is a truly modular, completely professional camera that allows you to start with something at your scale and upgrade it from an almost prosumer camera right up to something that exceeds every technical specification provided by the big manufacturers. Let’s just hope they get it into production quickly! — Noah Harlan
