"Noka: keeper of worlds"
Explores the Dark Side of Caribbean Folklore with Help from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Trinidadian born filmmaker Shaun Escayg has worked in VFX for more than a decade. He loves to create and manipulate images, especially when it comes to anything supernatural, as he is a huge monster film fan. For inspiration, he often draws upon his own heritage and love of Caribbean folklore, which has a variety of dark creatures in its beliefs, myths, tales and practices. In this type of folklore, the supernatural exists side by side with humans, and Shaun decided to explore this theme in his short film "Noka, keeper of worlds" which he wrote and directed. In order to bring the Caribbean's dark creatures to life, Shaun relied on his expertise in VFX, but when it came to capturing the live action, he needed a very specific camera to support his workflow.

Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
"Filmage: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL" began as a passion project for a group of creatives working at Dallas-based post house CharlieUniformTango (CUT), and quickly evolved into a full-fledged documentary production. Within four years, the film's directors Deedle LaCour and Matt Riggle, along with editors Justin Wilson and James Rayburn, had traveled the world, combining a love for old-school punk music with filmmaking chops to deliver an indie flick that recounts the history and influence of punk rock legends the Descendents. The film features a compilation of present-day interviews with band members and industry influencers, fan video submissions and archived tour media. Editorial for the film required a portable and flexible workflow, for which Rayburn turned to AJA's Io XT Thunderbolt-enabled professional video device for on-the-go I/O. Read More

686 Technical Apparel has always been about providing innovative, fashionable outerwear and technical apparel inspired from the same Los Angeles street culture and mountain lifestyle that it was founded on. When cinematographer Ian Post was hired to shoot cinematography for the brand, he knew his gear needed to be as reliable, durable and resilient, as well as able to withstand the elements, as the outerwear he was shooting. Not only does Ian's camera have to work in such harsh conditions, but it also has to deliver stunning footage that captures the snowy landscape as well as highlights the star of the shoots, 686 outerwear.

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Grants a Wish
In making an independent film about the film industry and the journey of pursuing the Hollywood dream, the last thing Director Jared Cohn wanted was for it to look fake. Especially when the film was one of the most meaningful projects he had ever created. "The film looks almost like a documentary, but it's completely narrative and scripted. Since I made it on my own dime, the only way I was able to achieve such as realistic look was with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera," said Jared. "The camera's dynamic range provided such an authentic look at an affordable price, and many people think it's a documentary because it looks so realistic. Read More
