Jimmy Eat World Concert Series Shot with URSA Mini Pro 12K

PostThu Mar 04, 2021 7:18 pm

Blackmagic Design has announced that its URSA Mini Pro 12K digital film cameras were used to shoot rock band Jimmy Eat World’s streaming concert series Phoenix Sessions. A trio of concerts featuring the band performing their “Surviving,” “Futures” and “Clarify” albums were streamed to fans around the world, with each of the three streams focusing on a different album.

Codirector and Editor Kevin Garcia chose the URSA Mini Pro 12K, with DP Gabriel Gely shooting in Blackmagic RAW, for its image quality and flexibility. “Gabriel and I have been using the URSA Mini Pro 12K for the last two months on projects for Chaka Khan, blackbear, Dance Gavin Dance and more,” said Garcia. “We usually shoot in 8K for 4K delivery, and the color and skin tone are game changers. The flexibility of Blackmagic RAW in post is a huge factor as well with the integration of Generation 5 Color Science.”

“Jimmy Eat World is a very tight live band, and with the full albums being performed through, we had to treat storage as a commodity, so 8K in select areas was the highest we could go,” he continued. “In streaming the content, we were limited to a 1080 render, so having all that crop space allowed us to push shots in and reframe as needed or create new shots in post that we didn’t even think about when actually filming. Having the extra resolution has really changed our entire post production process for the better.”
