Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
"Filmage: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL" began as a passion project for a group of creatives working at Dallas-based post house CharlieUniformTango (CUT), and quickly evolved into a full-fledged documentary production. Within four years, the film's directors Deedle LaCour and Matt Riggle, along with editors Justin Wilson and James Rayburn, had traveled the world, combining a love for old-school punk music with filmmaking chops to deliver an indie flick that recounts the history and influence of punk rock legends the Descendents. The film features a compilation of present-day interviews with band members and industry influencers, fan video submissions and archived tour media. Editorial for the film required a portable and flexible workflow, for which Rayburn turned to AJA's Io XT Thunderbolt-enabled professional video device for on-the-go I/O. Read More

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Grants a Wish
In making an independent film about the film industry and the journey of pursuing the Hollywood dream, the last thing Director Jared Cohn wanted was for it to look fake. Especially when the film was one of the most meaningful projects he had ever created. "The film looks almost like a documentary, but it's completely narrative and scripted. Since I made it on my own dime, the only way I was able to achieve such as realistic look was with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera," said Jared. "The camera's dynamic range provided such an authentic look at an affordable price, and many people think it's a documentary because it looks so realistic. Read More

Jumping Genres on
Close your eyes and picture the first time you watched "The Maltese Falcon." Now do the same with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." Can you picture the soft shadows and tenseness of film noire? How about the heightened details of spaghetti westerns where you can see every hair on a face and every bead of sweat? Both genres of film have very distinct feelings, color schemes and emotional responses. Now shake your head, mix them together and imagine what it would look like if you combined the two. You would get "Trent & Isabella." Read More

Punk, Pop and Sci Fi All Sealed With a Kiss in "Pink Zone"
Punk, Pop and Sci Fi All Sealed With a Kiss in
For Ben Walter, it all started 20 years ago when he saw Disney's Sleeping Beauty. The pure princess and how she changes from a single prick of the finger and true love's kiss. That idea sat in his mind for years, and came to the surface in 2013 when he was working on his UCLA thesis film. Once through with college, the idea turned into a full length feature. But the idea wasn't a remake of Sleeping Beauty. What if boys could kill girls with a kiss. Certainly not the happy ending from the cartoon. But a gloomy, frightening look at the other side of the coin. And that was the birth of the Benjamin Walter's "Pink Zone," with its dreamy and graphic images captured by Blackmagic Cinema Cameras and DaVinci Resolve. Read More
