Congratulations to all Oscar nominees using Blackmagic Design

Blackmagic Design Inc. congratulates Avatar, Precious, Coraline and Invictus on their nomination for the Oscar Awards by the National Academy of Arts and Sciences. Blackmagic Design is proud to have been used in the production of Avatar and Precious, films nominated for Best Picture, as well as in a number of other Oscar nominated films, including Coraline and Invictus.

Filmmaking continues to innovate and redesign itself using Blackmagic's digital technologies. From the 3D world of Avatar to the intense real-world dramas such as Precious using different formats, color, shading and other digital technology, filmmakers have to build digital workflows that address a huge range of technical needs. Blackmagic Design's extensive line of products has given filmmakers of all levels the confidence to create digitally.

A wide range of Blackmagic Design products were used in a number of nominated films. These product lines included high-end 3D/color grading and video mastering through the Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve and 2K product lines, the Blackmagic Design HDLink HD and 2K monitoring solution, Blackmagic Design Multibridge Extreme PCI Express capture and playback technology and Blackmagic Design VideoHub SD/HD 3Gb/s SDI routers.

"I want to congratulate this year's Oscar nominees and winners," said Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic Design. "This has been a great year for digital technology within the film industry and gave us a glimpse of what the next decade's filmmaking workflows will look like. I am proud to say that Blackmagic Design has played a critical part in this leap forward."

Quantel Pablo helps Modern VideoFilm finish Avatar. Leading US West Coast facility Modern VideoFilm is nearing completion of all the finishing work for James Cameron's forthcoming Stereo3D film 'Avatar'. Every frame of the film as well as all the trailers and promotions have passed through Modern's pipeline, which includes three Quantel Pablo Stereo3D systems. The work completed on Pablo includes conforming and Stereo3D checking, adjustment and quality control. Crucially, the Pablos have also handled all the Stereo3D English subtitling required for the Na'vi language used by some characters in the film.
 
'Avatar', to be released on December 18th, is a massively ambitious project that combines live action Stereo3D with cutting edge 3D animation. Around 75% of the shots in the movie are VFX shots, which are being completed at facilities all round the world and then brought together at Modern VideoFilm.
