The Sundance Short “Me+Her”, Shot On Blackmagic Cinema Camera & Pocket Cinema Camera

“Me+Her” is a live action short about cardboard people in a cardboard world that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, all captured on Blackmagic Cameras.  The team at Island Creek Pictures chose the Blackmagic Cinema camera for the bulk of their shooting, citing the “…form factor, color space, latitude, image quality and flexibility for color correction with RAW…” as the reason they chose it over the many other cameras they tested. The film was shot over 18 days and came out to 10 terabytes worth of footage that the team transcoded to ProRes Lite. The transcoded footage was then edited, and converted back to RAW for use in DaVinci Resolve.

It was very important to me to minimize the limits equipment would put on us so I could operate more from a creative mindset rather than a logistical one.”
