Blackmagic Design cameras and gear used on 2022 Oscar nominated films

Mar 25, 2022

Blackmagic Design’s Pocket Cinema Camera line of digital film cameras, DaVinci Resolve Studio editing, colour grading, visual effects (VFX) and audio post production software, and more were used on a variety of the films nominated for the 94th Academy Awards, such as The Power of the Dog, Belfast and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

VFX supervisor Kelly Port used numerous Pocket Cinema Camera 4Ks during VFX shooting on Spider-Man: No Way Home noting that, “The Pocket Cinema Camera 4Ks were valuable in helping us with our VFX workflow. Their high resolution was critical in gathering key information for our post work.”

Some of the Oscar nominated films that used Blackmagic Design gear during production include:

  • Attica DP Kevin J. Burroughs used ATEM Mini live production switcher to show camera angles during remote interviews for the documentary;
  • CODA DIT Leonard A. Mazzone used Smart Videohub 16×16 router and UltraStudio 4K capture and playback device for on set work;
  • Free Guy DIT Daniel A. Hernandez used DaVinci Resolve Studio and UltraStudios for on set work; and
  • Spider-Man: No Way Home VFX supervisor Kelly Port used five Pocket Cinema Camera 4Ks as witness cameras during VFX shooting.

DaVinci Resolve Studio continues to support post professionals across disciplines. “We would not have been able to work this fast and in such a high quality if it hadn’t been for DaVinci Resolve. It is truly a state of the art storytelling tool, which we used to edit, colour correct and composite our VFX,” explained film editor Thomas Engell of Sound of Sunrise. “Employing a 4K real time editing workflow, I worked without proxies while also delivering preliminary Foley, sound FX and audio editing using Fairlight.”
