"Izakaya FUJI" Uses URSA Mini 4.6K, Resolve Mini Panel

PostFri Jul 07, 2017 12:57 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that TV Tokyo’s new drama series “Izakaya Fuji,” which begins airing this July 8th, was shot using two Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6Ks as the A and B cameras, as well as Blackmagic’s Video Assist and Video Assist 4K and SmartView 4K. On-set and final grading for the series was done using DaVinci Resolve Studio 14 and the DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel.

This drama series is based on the novel depicting the life of a man called “Oyaji,” who ran the Izakaya Fuji, a Japanese style tapas restaurant in Tokyo and who passed away in 2014. Kento Nagayama stars as young actor, Eiichi Nishio, while many well known actors, including Nao Omori, stars as himself as regular customers of “Fuji.” For every episode, the producers cast a famous guest actor, such as Ryoko Shinohara and Ren Osugi, as regular customers. The story depicts Eiich as he struggles to pursue his dream of becoming an actor through meeting those celebrity customers and hearing the story of “Oyaji.”

The drama has been available via Amazon Prime Video a week before the TV Tokyo on-air date. “We had to deliver the master for Amazon Prime Video as Ultra HD 4K, so we needed something that can shoot more than 4K resolution. Most of cameras on the market in that category cannot shoot RAW inside the camera, so it usually requires a recorder. We were looking for a camera with good picture quality and was easy to handle, and we wanted to use two of them. With limited budget, the URSA Mini 4.6K was the only choice that meet our requirements,” said Takahiro Imai, the DP.
