Due to the continuing trend in mobile adoption at video production houses, many organizations have started recognizing individuals who excel in this category. One of the popular award ceremonies for filmmakers is the iPhone Film Festival (IFF) that is now into its fifth year of awarding film makers that use iPhones in shooting their movies. Read More

Defining The Art of Shaving with Blackmagic Design
Defining The Art of Shaving with Blackmagic Design
For many men, shaving their facial hair is a necessary evil. If they are not careful, they risk nicks, cuts and irritation, and the process is tedious and sometimes downright uncomfortable. Although shaving can be a chore, it's a must for many, unless they want to look like a member of the Duck Dynasty family. One of the questions that employees receive most often is "What's the difference between a traditional and royal shave?" To help answer this question and help customers better understand its services, Director Christopher Califano recently shot a video that brought the shaving experience to life using the Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF, Pocket Cinema Camera and DaVinci Resolve color corrector.

'Bob and the Trees' Survives the Winter Thanks to Help from Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Director Diego Ongaro knew he had his star when he first encountered Bob Tarasuk six years ago. "I was instantly attracted to his magnetic personality and captivating stories. Logging, his main line of work, became a fascination for me. I've often wondered about the history of the plank you buy at the lumberyard or the log you throw in the fireplace," explained Ongaro. "I'm captivated by the physical connection between the human body and the trees, the balance of power when it comes time to take a tree down and how small a man is compared to a giant oak. Yet, the paradox is that man usually wins." Read More

GOAL! Blackmagic Design Helps MLS Insider and Columbus Crew SC Connect with Supporters and Gain New Ones
A hush falls over the crowd as tension mounts. The referee places the ball just 12 yards away from the goalkeeper, who gingerly sways from side to side, keeping his body loose in anticipation of the split second reaction time he has to make a save. The opponent readies himself, not wanting to give away which section of the net he's aiming for as he gets into position behind the ball. Fans hold their breath as the referee blows the whistle, the kicker launches the ball and the goalie dives... Read More

Grading Martian Landscapes with DaVinci Resolve
Creating a cinematic opening scene for a video game is incredibly hard to do well. You have a couple of minutes to tell a dramatic story that will capture and bring the gamer into a new world, as well as set up the background story and emotions for the countless hours of gameplay about to happen.

Orlando Public Library Takes Learning to Another Level with Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio
When many people think of libraries, they think of rows upon rows of books meticulously categorized and alphabetized.
