Rotting in the Sun Relies on Blackmagic Cloud for Post

PostWed Feb 08, 2023 6:47 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Blackmagic Cloud enabled real time collaboration during post production for the feature film “Rotting in the Sun,” which is part of the 2023 Sundance Film Festival’s Premieres program. Lead Colorist Ernie Schaeffer of Caffeine Post and his team also used DaVinci Resolve Studio for grading, online editorial and mastering on the project.

In the black comedy, which “skewers not only the business of filmmaking, but also our modern solipsistic culture,” Director Sebastián Silva plays himself. After saving social media influencer Jordan Firstman from drowning, Silva and Firstman decide to collaborate on a series. When Firstman arrives at Silva’s Mexico City studio, he is nowhere to be found, leading Firstman to suspect the housekeeper knows what happened. Based in Mexico City, Silva was awarded the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival for “The Maid,” and his “Crystal Fairy” won the Director Award: World Cinema Dramatic at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

With Caffeine Post also based in Mexico City, Schaeffer worked with Silva and DP Gabriel Díaz, who was based in Chile, to create the film’s specialized look. “We printed samples to 35mm positive to see what aspects we liked to find a look for the film that was digital with a sense of 35 positive print, which is softer like 16mm,” noted Schaeffer.
