The Content Force is Ready for a Reawakening
Content Insider #443 - HDR, 4K
There wasn't a filmmaker at Sundance that hadn't shot in 4K. The stuff that got scooped up the quickest was done in HDR too. The differences in films, shows, content is obvious. And because it's so good some of the best indie filmmakers are coming into their own...really shining. The creative talent is outstanding. The garbage is still...garbage. It takes talent, expertise, experience. You're going to see the difference everywhere you turn and no matter what device you use to watch it on. Nothing sucks you in more than a good story well told by a great storyteller. Read More

Parachute Creates a Legendary Ballgame in an Empty Stadium for Chrysler with Blackmagic Fusion Studio
Parachute Creates a Legendary Ballgame in an Empty Stadium for Chrysler with Blackmagic Fusion Studio
When Miguel Cabrera swings the bat, there's usually a stadium full of screaming fans around him. However, for Chrysler's "Miggy at the Bat" commercial, the stands were empty. The commercial celebrating the 2015 Chrysler 200 centered on Cabrera in an updated "Casey at the Bat" tale and featured the legendary showdown between batter and pitcher. In reality, Cabrera and the pitcher were worlds apart, in Detroit and Los Angeles, surrounded by green screens and needed NYC's Parachute to create the scenery and game around the players. The Parachute team, led by founder Sam O'Hare, created the spot by building a stadium and providing the setting for the infamous strike out (and later, added comeback.) Using different software for various components to build the stadium, Parachute relied on Blackmagic Design's advanced visual effects (VFX) and motion graphics solution, Fusion Studio, to bring everything together.
