Blackmagic Cinema Camera and DaVinci Resolve Used for FOX Sports 1 Debut Commercial

Fremont, CA – August 26, 2013 - Blackmagic Design today announced that Blackmagic Cinema Camera and DaVinci Resolve were used to complete FOX Sports 1’s premier commercial “Happy Days Are Here Again.”

Launched on August 17, 2013, FOX Sports 1 is America’s new sports network that includes NASCAR, UFC, college football, college basketball and soccer coverage, along with studio shows, such as FOX Football Daily and FOX Sports LIVE.

Directed by HSI Productions’ Joseph Kahn, the commercial called for aerial shots of a NASCAR race, and HSI Productions turned to Mi6 Films, an aerial photography and video company based in Southern California. Because the NASCAR shoot took place at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C., Mi6 Films partnered with Beaufort, S.C. based wollwerthfilms to achieve the aerial shots.

Wollwerthfilms specializes in aerial cinematography and provided a high tech RC aerial cinematography rig equipped with a Blackmagic Cinema Camera in order to help capture the intensity of a 200 mph NASCAR race during the first day of shooting at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“The director, Joseph Kahn, was looking for a really dramatic wipe reveal of the stadium and motor speedway with fans cheering and waving,” said Stephen Wollwerth, owner wollwerthfilms. “We were also able to capture a long straight high speed shot where we cleared the fence and dropped down to just over the track level as cars were passing underneath.”

In order to achieve these shots, Stephen mounted a Blackmagic Cinema Camera on a 3X Pro v3 gimbal from PhotoShip One, which was then mounted on an aerial cinematography rig Stephen built himself. A Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI to Analog was also mounted on the helicopter to convert the video feed to analog and send it downlink from the helicopter wirelessly for ground viewing.

“We needed really high video quality to match the other high end cameras that were used for shooting, and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera fit right in,” said Stephen. “The footage was shot in 2.5K CinemaDNG RAW format for optimum image quality, and the 13 stops of dynamic range really gave us the latitude we needed. Even DIT Jeremy Ball commented that the latitude of the footage was amazing.”

Colorist, DIT, Post Supervisor and Owner of A GRADE, a Charlotte, N.C. based post production facility, Jeremy and Bryan Scibelli, of production and post facility Cinemanix, were the DITs for the Charlotte location and used Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve color corrector for setting up look up tables, data management, transcoding and rendering out on set dailies.

“We had a mix of Resolve and Resolve Lite, and we couldn’t have asked for a better organizational tool. Resolve’s ability to add in different types of metadata carried through the post process was invaluable, especially with the multi camera, multi location and multi day shoot,” said Jeremy. “Resolve is affordable, fast and powerful, and provided us with a seamless process when it came to handling the multitudes of footage from a range of cameras. It’s pretty much the only tool out there that handles virtually any type footage. We were there on the first day of shooting, and Resolve set the standard for the entire shoot’s dailies process.”

LINCOLN 1863 made Thanksgiving for all of us to be thankful for what we have

Thanksgiving inspiration for the day, from Natalie Ann.
In 1863 Lincoln made Thanksgiving a National Holiday. In the depths of the Civil War, Lincoln proclaimed that the nation needs to be thankful for the “bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come…” Lincoln goes on to establish a day of giving thanks: “I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, …, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.” The purpose of Lincoln’s Thanskgiving was to take a moment to ask God “…to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it… to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.” “Proclamation of Thanksgiving (October 3, 1863)”. Abraham Lincoln Online. Retrieved 2010-11-24.

Though Lincoln himself was clearly a follower of God, his message resonates even if you aren’t. Because whatever your faith, you can still probably give thanks for many things. Give thanks for the men who fought in the Civil War, or the men who are fighting current wars in the Middle East, far from their families, stuffed birds and delicious pie this weekend. Give thanks for your family, your friends, your job, your “bounties”. Give thanks for pumpkin pie and a well deserved day off.

Give thanks to whoever you want, for whatever you want, but take a moment to be grateful.

Secondly, don’t shop this weekend. Be thankful for what you already have. Because the pre lit Christmas tree, the holiday ribbon Bow-Tique, the American Girl crafts and the Crayola activity kits you were going to buy, they can wait.
