“Modern Wardudes” Parody Series Uses Blackmagic Design

PostMon Jun 15, 2020 2:10 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that up and coming production company Ascender produced their popular YouTube web series, “Modern Wardudes” exclusively using the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K and DaVinci Resolve Studio.

A parody of Modern Warfare and Call of Duty, as well as numerous other popular first person shooter games, Ascender principal and series producer Stephen Ford was inspired to create “Modern Wardudes” by Activision’s early live action commercials for their Call of Duty franchise. Ford saw the potential of expanding on this world, albeit with a much smaller budget.

Ford’s early work was as an actor, working on shows for Disney, Nickelodeon and ABC before starring in “Kamen Rider Dragon Night” for CW. But even then, he wasted no time practicing his filmmaking skills. “I’d wrangle up my actor buddies to film sketches and parodies on YouTube while working on shows like Teen Wolf and Desperate Housewives,” said Ford. “It was all just a fun way to be creative and keep my friends employed. But over time it morphed into using ‘fun’ to become a slightly better director and producer.”
