Artist of War--Chuck Caldwell
Today's independent filmmakers never know when their next great film idea will emerge, which is one of the reasons Cirina Catania, of The Catania Group, never leaves home without her basic capture/workflow tools in an on-board Explorer case. On a flight to visit her mother in Pennsylvania, her case included a Blackmagic Pocket camera, Sony A7r, batteries, a small Lumos light, extra SD cards, a Thunderbolt 2 dock, a 4TB OWC ThunderBay 4 mini and a 1TB OWC Envoy Pro EX. She also hand-carried her MacBook Pro and a small tripod. Because of weight and space limitations, tools like extra lenses and other "nice to have" equipment were left behind. Read More

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.

"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
