Tutto Metal Design :: Blackmagic Cinema Camera Artist Profile

A lot of great shorts come in thru the planet5D videolog and this is one that I especially liked – “Tutto Metal Design :: Blackmagic Cinema Camera Artist Profile” – you can rate it on the videolog too!

When I first saw this, I immediately knew it was shot on a Blackmagic Cinema Camera – it just had that distinctive look. This is one of the best Blackmagic Cinema Camera pieces I've seen and wanted to make sure you saw it!

Tutto Metal Design :: Blackmagic Cinema Camera Artist Profile


Ray is small in physical stature – roughly 120 pounds dripping wet – but he manages to bend and shape large pieces of heavy metal by virtue of talent, experience, and at times, sheer will. He may be quick to dismiss the complexity or difficulty of what he does, but don’t let him fool you; his finished pieces are the monumental accomplishments of a modest man.

When we sat down and thought about how we wanted to approach creating Ray’s artist profile film, one of the most important considerations for us was to “do justice” to his work and his passion. We knew we had to create something that at least matched his attention to detail and commitment to making beautiful, emotive work. We wanted to make sure that someone clear across the country (or clear across the world) could fully appreciate Ray’s craft by virtue of ours.

To that end, we elected to produce Ray’s story with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Everything was shot in 2.5k raw and meticulously color graded in Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe After Effects CS6. It required careful planning, careful shooting, and a commitment to go through a complex post-production process. In short, it required from us everything that Ray’s work requires of him. There is nothing “off the shelf” or prepackaged about this artist profile film, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
