  • Sean Bean Dies Matrix - TV/Movie Feature

    After we saw this brilliant Nicholas Cage Matrix from The Shiznit, we knew we had to make something similar for the accomplished actor Sean Bean. The Nic Cage matrix shows all of his films plotted on a graph according to how brilliant (questionable) they were, and how serious or mental they were. That concept works for Nic, but we’re pretty sure Sean Bean hasn’t been in many bad films or T.V series, so instead we chose to measure the other thing he’s famous for; dying.

  • BLACKMAGIC CINEMA Camera Shipping Update: 1/14

     

    Mon Jan 14, 2013 4:32 pm

    Hi,

    Wanted to send out a quick update on camera shipments. The production lines have been up and running with sensors coming in. We have been sending out regular shipments of EF model cameras each week to all of our offices around the world, and each week we are getting cameras out at a faster rate. We are still not at full volume shipping though, because sensors are not quite getting to us at a pace that I could say was full volume. But each day I am seeing the volume get better from the sensor company. I am happy with the quality of the sensors.

    For the MFT model, we want to get through some more of the EF orders before I give a date on when we will start getting the MFT orders out. They are ready to go, but we need to get through most of the early EF pre-orders first.

    I have been blown away seeing all the footage coming from people with their cameras around the world. It's been very exciting to watch the camera doing such fantastic creative work!

    Regards,

Upon release the film received mixed reviews from film critics around the globe however overall it has staked its claim as one of the masterpieces in modern horror film making.

    Given the super-low budget that the makers of the film had, it is amazing to think that the Blair Witch Project made it on to the big screen at all. Today it is not uncommon to see movies created for tens of millions of pounds, yet the Blair Witch Project made do with just $500,000 - $750,000. As you can imagine, everybody involved in the making of the film received quite the healthy return on investment, however not even the makers thought it would be as successful as it really was.
