'Kill Game' Screening At Cannes Shot On Blackmagic Cinema Camera

'Kill Game', a new suspense thriller/horror film produced by Marty Murray of Full Throttle Pictures and directed by Robert Mearns, was shot entirely on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF and graded and edited using DaVinci Resolve. The film is being shown at the Cannes film market event, Le Marche du Film.

'Kill Game' follows a group of high school pranksters who one day go too far and kill another student. Years later they return to their home town when one of their friends is mysteriously found dead and one by one each member of the group is slowly and methodically murdered.
To capture the extreme brutality and dark imagery of Mearns’s vision, the producers chose to use multiple Blackmagic Cinema Cameras as the main cameras on the shoot. "The director had a very specific vision for how each shot would capture the darkness and horror that this group of friends was facing, with dark skies and morbid killing scenes. To get this, we needed a camera with high dynamic range and the ability to shoot in RAW so that the director could get all the data possible to really exercise his creativity,” said Marty. “The Blackmagic Cinema Camera fit everything we needed and the images were incredible."
The film was shot in RAW using two Blackmagic Cinema Cameras. Footage was brought into DaVinci Resolve for a first pass grade and was then transferred to ProRes for editing. Once the footage received an initial edit, it was exported back to DaVinci Resolve for final color correction, final editing and audio fixes by Ari Golan It was then output to ProResHQ, BluRay and DVD for final delivery to Cannes.
"The Blackmagic Cinema Cameras allowed the filmmakers to get right into the middle of the action with their small form factor and design. “One of the toughest shots we had was a POV shot from inside a car. We wedged ourselves into the trunk with no problem. The camera's small form factor let me get my shot without worrying about losing image quality," said Ari.
'Kill Game' will also be shown at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival and the upcoming international Shriekfest horror film festival, and will be distributed to theaters later in 2014 by VMI.
