Fremont, CA – August 27, 2021 – Blackmagic Design announced today that many of the 2021 summer season’s worldwide film releases used numerous Blackmagic Design products during production and post, including its digital film cameras, DaVinci Resolve Studio for editing, color correction, visual effects production and more. This included some of the biggest blockbusters and expected blockbusters of the summer, such as “The Green Knight,” “Jungle Cruise,” “Spiral” and “Cruella.”

Blackmagic Design products were used at nearly every stage of production and post production on various summer films created around the world. DaVinci Resolve continues to be the go to application for many of the world’s leading editors, colorists and post production facilities, such as Company 3’s Jaimie O’Bradovich on “Werewolves Within”, Wild Union Post’s Alex Noble on “Holler” and HARBOR’s Joe Gawler on “After Yang.”

“‘After Yang’ benefited greatly from the flexibility of DaVinci Resolve Studio’s node structure,” said Gawler. “Using nodes downstream of our main balancing work, the filmmakers and I were able to quickly experiment with a variety of more stylized palates, while simultaneously tightening the continuity within each scene.”

During production, Blackmagic Design cameras were used on a variety of films and scenes, while the company’s various routers, capture and playback devices, monitors, DaVinci Resolve and Mini Converters were used on DIT carts to help manage onset production, from suspense thrillers such as “Old” to horror movies like “Candyman”.
