We’ve spoken to the growing influence of Blackmagic Design’s product line, from capture to post, for some time now. But seeing the list of just some of the feature films this year alone that have utilized some sort of Blackmagic tool is still quite staggering.
We’ve previously spoken about a big item on this list, Avengers: Age Of Ultron. You can check out an in depth look at how Cinematographer Ben Davis used a small army of Pocket Cinema Cameras to capture some of the film’s stunt sequences here: indieshooter.com/Avengers-Age-of-Ultron-Pocket-Cinema-Camera
Also of note is the work done with Fusion Studio on the movie ‘Spy’ by the team at Flash Film Works. Compositing Supervisor Jeremy Nelson and his team used Fusion Studio to handle their “core compositing work, such as projection and rig and wire removal”.

Other notable films on this list include ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, ‘Tomorrowland’, ‘Magic Mike XXL’ and more. For the full list and the products used on each, see the press release below.
