Ford vs Ferrari uses DaVinci Resolve To Create Unique Styles

PostWed Jan 22, 2020 2:35 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that EFILM Senior Colorist Skip Kimball used DaVinci Resolve Studio to grade Twentieth Century Fox’s “Ford vs Ferrari.”

Directed by James Mangold, the film follows the true story of car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and test driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) as they work to build a revolutionary sports car for Ford Motor Company in their bid to outperform Ferrari at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael looked to earlier inspiration for the look of the film, in particular the 1966 “Grand Prix” starring James Garner. “Grand Prix was a classic cinemascope, 70mm Kodak picture, and I just loved the framing and simplicity of it. Back then, they didn’t have this technology of tracking cars with fancy cranes and drones… It was very important to us to convey that these little machines are just a few nuts and bolts holding together this gigantic engine. Not really having braking ability, and the danger and the intensity of what it’s like in a race car.”
