Blackmagic Design today announced that “Dead Men Float,” the first new film in more than a decade from “American History X” producer and the creator of dozens of films and television movies Jon Hess, was shot on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Pocket Cinema Camera.

Jon Hess is an award winning director, producer and writer, having developed and co produced the Academy Award nominated “American History X,” as well as directed films such as “Watchers” and “Alligator 2.” After leaving the film industry at the end of the 1990s, Jon has returned to filmmaking with a new production company, GK Hess, and his first new full length film in more than 15 years, “Dead Men Float.” Part of what brought Jon back to filmmaking was the creativity and image quality of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Pocket Cinema Camera.

“Dead Men Float” is a horror film focusing on the evil that remains in a house years after a terrible event and how this impacts a family in their new home. The film, which will be released theatrically worldwide and online later in 2014, combines a number of different looks that Jon and his production team worked on, as the dramatic and horrifying events unfolded. The Blackmagic Cinema Camera was the main camera used on the film, with the Pocket Cinema Camera used for hard to reach angles and shots.
