Founded with the belief that the art of filmmaking should be accessible to all, the Blackmagic Collective is designed to bring together filmmakers from all disciplines and all experience levels to learn from, share with, and inspire each other. Whether a professional looking to grow your connections, or new to the craft hoping to learn from the pros, the Blackmagic Collective strives to provide all members the opportunity to grow creatively.

A Recap of Our January 12th, 2019 Event!


A full class attended the first ever Blackmagic Collective Resolve editing class on Saturday afternoon. Taught by certified instructor Nathan Morgan, students learned the basics of Resolve, from ingest through delivery, and the many tools on the edit panel.

Future classes will cover more in-depth editing, as well as other toolsets available in DaVinci Resolve.


The 6pm cocktail party featured an open bar and complimentary appetizers, while guest mingled, met other members, and enjoyed reviewing cool gear from Sigma, Hot Rod Cameras, DJI and Blackmagic Design.


Moderated by Christian Sebaldt ASC (Lucifer, For the People), Roy Wagner joinedRobert Adetuyi, the director of his latest project “Stand!”,  and discussed the challenges of producing an independent musical. The audience enjoyed the stunning theatrical trailer as well as a Behind the Scenes film with Roy discussing his use of the URSA Mini Pro as his camera of choice on the film.


The Young Colorists panel, moderated by filmmaker Jenn Page, was a lively discussion of the journey each colorist on the panel had taken through the field. Filled with funny stories about their experiences, as well as valuable tips and tricks, not only for the young colorist but also the young filmmaker, the panel was just another highlight of the evening. The panel featured Asa Fox (EFILM), Bryan Smaller (Company 3), Arianna Shining Star Pane (Apache),  and Matt Wallach (EFILM).
