NFL’s Chris Conley Creates Short Film with Blackmagic Design

PostTue Aug 11, 2020 1:44 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Jacksonville Jaguars Wide Receiver Chris Conley recently shot “Quarantime,” a new short film created during isolation, using a Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro G2 digital film camera shooting in Blackmagic RAW. Conley also edited and graded the film himself using DaVinci Resolve Studio, which he learned at home during football’s hiatus.

While Conley is known for his work on the field, he has a passion for filmmaking and made several short films prior to his NFL career, including his viral Star Wars fan film “Retribution.” “Quarantime” is his latest project and it's the first time Conley has stepped beyond the roles of writer and director to also serve as DP, editor and colorist. Shot at home with Conley and his wife Brianna Conley playing themselves, “Quarantime” follows a newlywed couple that spends part of their first year of marriage in isolation. The film premiered in July 2020 and is currently available via Conley’s YouTube channel, FlightConley.

According to Conley, he was inspired by the ups and downs of being stuck in the house together during quarantine. “I figured that this experience was common for a lot of people and wanted to share my view of it. Shooting at home was a unique situation since the space was rather small. It made us get creative about creating angles and the illusion of space,” he said.
