Live Streaming Exorcisms
Live Streaming Exorcisms
Damien LeVeck knows that in Hollywood, there are two main ways to make a feature film. You can either have a great idea, sell it to a studio and risk it turning into a completely different film, or you can have a great idea, raise the money yourself, hire your own actors and crew and make your vision into a reality. When Damien decided to direct "The Cleansing Hour," a fresh spin on the exorcism genre, he knew he had to take the latter route. Six months later and more than $30,000 raised, Damien has now locked picture on the proof-of-concept short film. Read More

Hit Television Show MythBusters Goes Out with a Bang with Help from Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras
Hit Television Show MythBusters Goes Out with a Bang with Help from Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras
After 15 seasons, more than 280 episodes and countless explosions, the hit television show MythBusters aired its grand finale episode on March 5, 2016. For many years, the show had been answering questions and debunking myths and urban legends by putting them to the test, helping viewers find out which myths are true and which are not. And as with any grand finale, the show wanted to go out with a bang. Worried about camera coverage, Scott doubled the compliment of Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras to an even 20. "When it came to filming a mile-long path of destruction, adding additional Pocket cameras was an easy decision," he noted. "The Pocket cameras have become the backbone of our second camera arsenal over the last few years for this specific reason." Read More

Princess Kimbra: Bringing Disney Magic to Life with the Blackmagic URSA
Princess Kimbra: Bringing Disney Magic to Life with the Blackmagic URSA
Once upon a time, a visual effects artist and a Grammy-award winning singer got together to make music video magic and Snow White was reborn. The tale begins when Adam C. Sager, a Portland, Oregon-based VFX supervisor and director, met with Kimbra, a New Zealand-born recording artist, and decided to honor Disney for the inspiration it had given both artists throughout the years. Kimbra had just recorded "I'm Wishing," the song from the classic "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" movie, for a Disney tribute album, We Love Disney, Australia. Blending reality with Disney magic, Sager created a music video that inserted Kimbra directly into the classic animated film as the heroine Snow White and wicked Evil Queen. Read More

Colorist Mark Todd Osborne Navigates a Child's Fantasy
"Audi TT: Reality? Check." The recent national ad campaign for the Audi TT from MediaCom, the agency behind the concept, features the iconic sports car racing through rugged terrain and busy cities alike. The spot enters the mind of a child, and as he races his toy car around a track and imagines a full-throttle adventure of challenging terrain and jaw-dropping stunts, the Audi TT achieves it in real life. Mirroring the boy's movements, the spot cuts to real life shots of the Audi TT racing on the edges of cliffs, through dense forests of tall pines, around jagged boulders and hairpin turns, as well as through the nighttime streets of San Francisco, weaving through trollies, traffic and tractor trailers.

Rivalry on the Ice
Rivalry on the Ice
There is almost no rivalry in professional sports that matches the intensity of one in the National Hockey League. It is not just team against team, but city against city competing against each other in rivalries that have been passed down through generations. Which is one of the reasons why the Winter Classic has become a huge success. Every year, the NHL highlights hockey the way it used to be played: Outside, open to the elements, and in front of thousands of screaming fans. All while featuring teams that have forged generations of bitter rivals. One of these heated rivalries is between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. These two teams are members of the "Original Six", the first professional hockey teams in the NHL, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. Read More
