  • Narrative Live Streaming With “Orbital Redux” & Blackmagic Design

    Live, interactive, narrative sci-fi is not something we've seen since...ever. So when we heard about "Orbital Redux" (starring Yuri Lowenthal and Yasmine Al-Bustami), Nerdist and Legendary's live sci-fi show about a pilot shuttling fuel in a ramshackle spaceship, we were certainly intrigued. Also of interest was the show's use of a full Blackmagic Design workflow, from cameras to live switchers. "Orbital Redux" was gracious enough to allow us on set for a day to shoot behind the scenes, as well as interview key members of the production. In honor of their upcoming finale (Thursday November 15 at 5:45PM PST on Project Alpha), we spoke with writer and director Steven Calcote, who described how the show got started, his inspiration behind the tactile, practical set and effects, the importance of inclusion in today's stories and how Blackmagic Design helped create a seamless end to end workflow for the show.
