Blackmagic Design Firmware Update, Live Seminar Coming to New York

Yesterday we attended Blackmagic Design’s live seminar in Los Angeles and it was, in a word, amazing. Between the wonderful presenters and the quality of the manufacturers in attendance it was an excellent place to learn about Blackmagic products and how they work within the industry. The attendees were also some of the best we’ve met at any trade show, and we really enjoyed speaking with a lot of new people that were right in our own back yard.

Blackmagic Cinema Camera Used On ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’

The sequel to everyone’s favorite natural disaster/shark attack movie mash up, ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ utilized the Blackmagic Cinema Camera as its B camera.

Director by Anthony C. Ferrante describes the appeal of the BMCC on their shoot: “The Blackmagic camera was really great because it was lightweight and produced amazing images. We could grab and go with it for quick inserts and shooting spur of the moment shots, while knowing that we would always get high quality images we could work with. It gave us images that had real sharpness and clarity and helped get additional elements needed to theVFX guys for some of the complicated shots in the film.”
