Turns out there’s an inspiring story behind this inspiring story.
Disney+’s new movie, Safety, is the story of former Clemson University football safety Ray McELrathBey (Jay Reeves), a young man facing a series of challenging circumstances, whose dedication and persistence help him to triumph over repeated adversities. Aided by his teammates and the Clemson community, he succeeds on the field while simultaneously raising and caring for his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr (Thaddeus J. Mixson).
It’s a heartwarming and empowering tale, but it turns out, there was something pretty cool going on behind the scenes in post-production.
Safety utilized an all Blackmagic Design workflow from principal photography to post. During production, the team used a digital asset management (DAM) system on set that was built around its switchers, recorders, routers, and monitors, and then was edited and graded using DaVinci Resolve Studio.Why is this cool?
