SXSW Premiere "Thank You a Lot" Tells a Story of Austin's Music Scene
With Some Help from Local Talent and DaVinci Resolve
SXSW Premiere
Austin, TX may be known as the live music capital of the world, but it's also home to a thriving video production and film industry that promotes and champions local talent, with members sourcing expertise from within the tight knit community. Austin doesn't just keep it weird; it also keeps it local, which is exactly what Writer/Director Matt Muir and Producer Chris Ohlson did with their feature film "Thank You a Lot." Not only was the film shot in Austin, but Matt is also a graduate of the University of Texas along with the film's DP, Harrison Witt, who teaches courses in advanced cinematography and film production at the university.

Film "20 Feet From Stardom" Casts the Spotlight on Background Singers
Film
For many backup singers, the tale is all too familiar. Despite earning spots singing backup for well known musical acts, so many talented background singers never quite receive the success and recognition they want. Using Blackmagic Design's Teranex 2D Processor and DaVinci Resolve color correction, Tremolo Productions has transformed the plight of the background singer into an awe inspiring documentary called "20 Feet From Stardom." The film focuses on several former backup singers whose voices were famous even if their names were not, including Darlene Love, Judith Hill, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Táta Vega and Jo Lawry. In addition to interviews with these singers and with music legends like Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger and Stevie Wonder, the film includes a combination of archival footage from old television appearances and studio sessions, as well as live concert footage, new interviews and even footage from YouTube.

Manhattan Center: State-of-the Art Video Editing in NYC
It is no secret that reality shows can be made and broken in post-production. Think of Bravo TV, which has made a fortune from good editing. Editing has become as important a part of the mix as picking the right cast members or creating the right environment. There is so much juicy footage to air that a "hats off" must be given to the editing team at Bravo and all the other successful reality shows: The actors are voluntarily put through the wringer for an entire day, and most of it ends up on the cutting room floor.

On Patrol with "Snow Guardians:" Life on Ski Patrol Caught on Film with DaVinci Resolve and HyperDeck Shuttle
On Patrol with
In the autumn of 2010, documentarian Carson Garner had an idea for a ten minute short about the ski patrol in Bozeman, Montana. The Northern Rocky Mountains would provide a picturesque backdrop to a compelling story about the search and rescue teams and their work to prevent catastrophic avalanches and respond to emergencies, with seemingly unmatched bravery and passion. Even with the overwhelming generosity of friends, strangers, and corporate sponsors, it was a challenging project. In freezing temperatures, at high altitudes, a tight deadline and a small budget, the team needed equipment that could perform efficiently and inexpensively. DaVinci Resolve and HyperDeck Shuttle were two essential products used to complete the project. Read More

Beautiful Berlin turned depressing for Korean spy thriller
Beautiful Berlin turned depressing for Korean spy thriller
As the capital of Germany, Berlin is a beautiful city with both modern infrastructures and sites of historic interest, but as the setting for 'The Berlin File', a 2013 South Korean spy thriller written and directed by Korean action auteur Ryu Seung-wan and starring Korea's top actors including Ha Jung-woo, Han Suk-kyu, Ryu Seung-bum and Jun Ji-hyun against each other in the twisty tale of political intrigue and personal redemption, Berlin has to be unpleasant enough. With a strong opening in box office, the action blockbuster attracted 7 million admissions in early 2013 to become the all-time highest-grossing Korean action film and the critics applauded its "secretive and gloomy atmosphere", which contributed to the film's great success. The magic that turned Berlin from a beautiful city to a gloomy cold place was performed by colorist Park Jin-Young with CJ Powercast with her 8 GPU Linux based DaVinci Resolve. Read More
