More than 40 Sundance 2022 Projects Created Using Blackmagic Design


Blackmagic Design has announced that more than 40 projects at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival were created using its digital film cameras, DaVinci Resolve Studio editing, grading, visual effects (VFX) and audio post production software, and more.

Blackmagic Design congratulates the many distinguished films, episodic series and projects that were chosen as part of Sundance's 2022 lineup, including immersive documentary 32 Sounds, which used a Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K digital film camera for select shots and was graded with DaVinci Resolve Studio; 892, which captured security camera footage with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K digital film camera and used DaVinci Resolve Studio for grading and on set work; and The Exiles, which was partially shot with an URSA Mini Pro 4.6K and graded with DaVinci Resolve Studio.

Virtual reality (VR) project Diagnosia relied on DaVinci Resolve Studio for editing, and many of the festival's films also used the software for post production, including Call Jane, Emily the Criminal, Master, Resurrection, Sharp Stick and When You Finish Saving the World.

I'm thrilled with the excellent results from DaVinci Resolve Studio, said Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power Director Nina Menkes. Our film was extremely complex, containing over 175 film clips with different formats, resolutions, and a variety of other technical issues we were dealing with. The technology of DaVinci Resolve Studio, along with the genius of our colorist Mike Sowa, gave us a stunning result.
