A variety of production and post-products of Blackmagic Design are being used by DPs, DITs, VFX artists, online editors and colourists to complete many of the fall 2017 season’s new and returning television shows and streaming series.
As many as 40 shows rely on Blackmagic Design’s digital film cameras; Fusion Studio visual effects (VFX), compositing, 3D and motion graphics software and DaVinci Resolve Studio editing, color correction and digital audio software; as well as its switchers, routers, monitors, and capture and playback devices.
DPs, such as Christian Sebaldt, ASC and Byron Shah, rely on the URSA Mini Pro’s and Micro Studio Camera 4K’s high quality images and compact form factors to capture unique angles, stunts and action shots.
Hollywood-based VFX studios such as Muse VFX continue to depend on Fusion Studio for VFX work and compositing across their projects. DaVinci Resolve Studio has long been a staple for many post professionals.
For example, approximately 85 per cent of the 140+ OTA, OTT and cable series and shows posting at Deluxe’s Encore, Level 3, Company 3 and EFilm facilities use DaVinci Resolve Studio for color grading, and a number of these shows also use the system for conforming.
Part of L.A.-based post production company Mango, The Loft Post handles online editing and color grading using DaVinci Resolve Studio for several new and returning hit network shows. “The Loft Post is an essential link in Mango’s chain of delivering all post needs in one stop,” said Mango President/Co-owner Stan Cassio. “Together Colorist Joe Cook and Online Editor Dave McLaughlin are able to seamlessly deliver projects using a real-time, collaborative process in DaVinci Resolve Studio.”
