Saw X Graded with DaVinci Resolve Studio

PostThu Nov 30, 2023 1:43 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that “Saw X,” the hit horror film from Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures, was graded by Kevin Camilleri of Toronto based Urban Post Production with DaVinci Resolve Studio editing, color grading, visual effects (VFX) and audio post production software. DP Nick Matthews also used a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K digital film camera for select scenes on the tenth and latest installment of the critically acclaimed horror franchise. The film, now in release, has taken in more than $100 million worldwide.

In the latest film in the billion dollar franchise, John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back. The most chilling installment of the “Saw” franchise yet explores the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game. Set between the events of “Saw” and “Saw II,” a sick and desperate Kramer travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer, only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, Kramer returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through a series of ingenious and terrifying traps. The film is directed by Kevin Greutert, written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, and produced by Oren Koules and Mark Burg.

During production, Matthews used the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K to shoot select visuals for the film’s terrifying traps, as well as to capture additional camera angles for action scenes. “The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K was used to capture some of the most iconic visuals of the film, as it played a crucial part in several of Jigsaw’s gruesome games. It was rigged like a SnorriCam to John Kramer during the blood boarding trap that placed the Pocket Cinema Camera 6K right into a waterfall of blood. I also used it to capture a number of the visuals for the film’s classic stutter frames, especially in the brain surgery trap and bone marrow trap. This meant shooting at 6 frames per second and 270 degree shutter while simultaneously ‘lens whacking’ where I’d play with removing the lens from the mount and remounting it to create light leaks similar to film roll outs,” Matthews said.
