Into the Now Filmed with Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K

PostMon Oct 01, 2018 1:31 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Director Michael Muller used 18 Micro Studio Camera 4Ks as part of two custom built virtual reality (VR) rigs to film “Into the Now,” an underwater VR documentary, which is the first in a series of films about marine life and the challenges facing our oceans today.

Told through Muller’s personal journey of overcoming his fear of sharks, the film touches on the pressing issues that our oceans face, such as climate change, pollution and overfishing, while also serving as an educational tool for viewers to experience the oceans firsthand through VR. Produced by RSA VR and Vanishing Oceans, LLC, the film premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival and was screened at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and the Sandbox Immersive Festival, part of the 2018 Qingdao International VR Week.

The film is also part of an ongoing research project with Stanford University's Neurology department on the benefits of VR for people with PTSD, anxiety and other stress disorders. Muller and Andrew Huberman, head of Neurology at Stanford University, along with a team of five scientists from Stanford, initially shot a sizzle piece, which made Muller realize the need for a better quality camera system to make the kind of film he wanted.
