Blackmagic Design congratulates the many distinguished feature films, documentaries and episodic series that were chosen as part of Sundance’s 2024 lineup, including “Good One,” “Stress Positions,” and “Union” which were shot in part with Blackmagic Design cameras. Additionally, projects such as “Love Me,” “A Real Pain,” “Suncoast,” and “Winner” relied on DaVinci Resolve Studio and Fusion Studio VFX and motion graphics software throughout post production, with documentaries such as “Frida” and “Union” also using Blackmagic Cloud.

According to “Stress Positions” DP Arlene Mueller, “We used the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 as our B camera and second unit camera, which allowed the director, Theda Hammel, to get some shots outside of the production schedule, as well as capture some key angles as a second camera on set. It was a great addition to our package and allowed Theda the flexibility to capture extra moments both on set and off, which helped greatly in the edit.”

War Game

“DaVinci Resolve’s accessibility has allowed me to grow as a colorist over the last ten years to now using it as the base of our company, Elemental Post. It’s given me the confidence as a colorist to work on a VFX and color heavy film like ‘Love Me,’” said David Tomiak, colorist of “Love Me.” “Resolve’s build for a VFX pipeline was amazing and allowed us to be more creative in the color grade. From using mattes and alpha layers to color space transform and ACES workflow, it allowed us to create a strong pipeline while working with many different VFX vendors.”
