Blackmagic Design would like to congratulate the films Foxcatcher and Lost River on their inclusion in the 2014 Cannes International Film Festival. Blackmagic Design is proud to announce that color correction for these films was done on DaVinci Resolve.
Held in Cannes, France from May 14-25, the Cannes Film Festival is one of the world’s most distinguished film festivals and previews new films of all genres, including documentaries, from around the world. Inclusion in the festival is one of the most prestigious honors an independent film can gain, and each year some of the most successful films of the next several years are shown for the first time there.
Some of the films color corrected using DaVinci Resolve at this year’s festival included: Foxcatcher, graded by Tom Poole, Company 3, which will be released in theaters by Sony Pictures Classics on November 2014; and Lost River, graded by Siggy Ferstl, Company 3.
The films in this year’s competition join a long list of films that have used DaVinci Resolve systems, including Les Miserables, Zero Dark 30, Prometheus, Silver Linings Playbook, Avatar, Precious,” Skyfall, Frankenweenie and The Fighter, as well as some of the world’s most popular TV shows, including NCIS: LA, Elementary and Sleepy Hollow.
DaVinci Resolve is used by thousands of colorists worldwide. It has been used to grade more feature films, television commercials, documentaries, episodic television productions and music videos than any other color grading system.
