Butcher Bird Studios Uses Ultimatte 12

PostFri Oct 15, 2021 3:27 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that Glendale based production group Butcher Bird Studios has integrated Ultimatte 12 into their studio production pipeline to service both real time and recorded virtual production offerings.

A premiere full service creative and production studio, Butcher Bird Studios is capable of a wide range of production styles, from streaming and AR/VR to cutting edge virtual production strategies. While frequently engaged to produce more standard content for a variety of clients, the team has become known for their ability to create live interactive virtual events for customers such as Legendary Digital, Netflix, Twitch, and more.

Butcher Bird directors Jason Milligan and Steven Calcote began working with Unreal Engine in 2019, when the world of virtual production was on many filmmakers’ minds, but had been rarely utilized. In 2020, large scale and large budget projects such as “The Mandalorian” were using virtual technology, but Lead Technical Director Griffin Davis knew there must be a way to engage that same technique on a more modest budget. “It often feels like we're in the wild west with this technology,” said Davis. “We all saw what ‘The Mandalorian’ accomplished and essentially said ‘I wanna learn how to do that, but without unlimited Disney money.’ So we toiled and struggled, tested, built and re built.”
